Founded in 1934 as a one-station, volunteer department, the Westminster Fire Department has grown to over 130 career firefighters, paramedics and support staff who serve the city from six fire stations and the Public Safety Center. Like our Westminster Fire Department fan page on Facebook!
The Westminster Fire Department participates in many community events to actively promote fire and life safety and to support charitable causes. Here's what's coming soon:
October is Fire Prevention Month -- click the image below to learn how to keep your family fire safe!
Santa visit lottery open Nov. 1-15 -- Westminster Fire Department has once again talked Santa into visiting Westminster homes December 1-6. The families lucky enough to be selected enjoy Santa arriving on a fire truck to visit with kids in their homes, then he listens to what children want for Christmas and gives them a small gift. If you would like Santa to visit your house, now is the time to sign up! Visits are scheduled geographically, sometime between 6–8 p.m. from Dec. 1-6. Registration for this program is a lottery system. Lottery entries for a Santa visit are ONLY accepted from 8 a.m., Nov. 1, through 5 p.m., Nov. 15. Register for a chance at a Santa visit. When registering, provide your full name, address, and phone number (reservations cannot be made without complete information, limit one registration per household). All complete requests will be entered in a drawing; notification of the lottery results will begin the week of November 17. For more information, call 303-658-4500.
Firefighters ask you to give a little for families in need -- What are those green bins around City Hall, Fire Stations, and other city facilities Nov. 17 – Dec. 12? A place to drop off donations for the annual holiday charity drive! Westminster Firefighters coordinate the charity drive, distributing the donations to the Have a Heart Project, Jeffco Foster Care, Westminster FISH food bank and Santa Cops. You have the chance to help the less fortunate by donating toys, clothing or non-perishable food items. Donations of new or gently used items can be dropped off at any city facility (look for the green bins!). Call 303-658-4500 for more information.
