Our Mission

Steamboat Springs Fire Rescue (SSFR) will promote life safety and reduce human suffering and property loss through public education and fire prevention programs. We will mitigate the consequences of fire, accident, sudden illness, or disaster in our community by providing a high level of fire and emergency medical services. We will actively participate in our community, serve as role models, and endeavor to efficiently employ all required resources to provide a service deemed excellent by the community of Steamboat Springs and its visitors. Reaching for the future, never forgetting the past.

SSFR delivers service to the City of Steamboat Springs and the surrounding area which falls under the Steamboat Springs Area Fire Protection District. For additional information please visit our website.

Public Service Announcements
- With day light saving, the Fire Department would like to remind everyone to change the batteries in your Smoke and Carbon Monoxide alarms.

- It is a good idea to have your gas fired furnaces/boilers inspected to ensure safe and efficient operations as we head into winter; and if you have wood burning devises, this is a good time to clean the chimney.

- For residents in the Steamboat Springs Area Fire Protection District, if you have wood and slash piles to burn...the burn season is November 1st until April 15th. There MUST be a minimum of 6 inches of snow covering the ground at the burn area. During the burn season, a permit is still required from Environmental Health, they can be reached at (970) 870-5588. Also, please notify Routt County Communications at (970) 879-1110 when you start your burn.
