Wildfire Season

The wildland fire season is upon us! Many of our residents live along the Wheat Ridge Clear Creek Greenbelt, which is considered an urban interface, where wildfire meets the city. To ensure that our firefighters are best prepared to help all of our citizens, the members of the Wheat Ridge Fire Department have begun their annual wildland firefighting training. This year’s training includes joining forces with our neighboring fire department, West Metro, to further the skills and knowledge of the Wheat Ridge Firefighters.
While the fire department does not have any role in direct mitigation of the greenbelt or properties along the greenbelt, the fire department does recommend that property owners take actions to help make their property fire safe. For further information on how to make your property fire safe, visit http://firewise.org/wildfire-preparedness/be-firewise/home-and-landscape.aspx, contact your insurance company, or call the Wheat Ridge Fire Department.

Edgewater Kitchen Fire

Edgewater Fire Picture

In the early morning hours on March 16th, Wheat Ridge firefighters, along with automatic aid from Fairmount Fire and West Metro Fire, responded to a reported house fire. Initial reports from dispatch indicated that the homeowner stated a candle had overturned and started a table on fire and they believe the fire was out. Edgewater police advised that all occupants were out of the house and one individual had minor injuries.

Engine 73 arrived on scene and reported a working structure fire. Engine 73 pulled an attack line to the back side of the house, made entry, and made a quick interior attack.  Fire crews were able to rescue 2 cats from the house. Fire damage was limited to the kitchen and dining room.

ISO Ratings to improve for Wheat Ridge and Edgewater

Insurance Services Office (ISO) is a third party evaluator of community fire protection. The evaluation includes water supply, communications and the capabilities of the Fire Department. Scoring is based on a 1-10 scale with the lower the number being a greater overall capability.   The Wheat Ridge Fire Department improved their score from a 4 to a 2 in Wheat Ridge, Lakeside, Mountain View and a small portion of Lakewood. In Edgewater this reduction was from a 6 to a 2. The ISO Public Protection Classification is a tool utilized by a majority of insurance companies to aid in determining fire insurance rates for properties within the assessed jurisdiction.

 

This classification placed Wheat Ridge Fire Protection District in the 98th percentile nationwide.
