Around 7 a.m. today, Dispatch received a call from a person who reported that water was dripping through their ceiling, music was playing loudly in the apartment above, and the man who lived there wasn't responding.

Upon arrival, first responders from FCPS and Poudre Fire Authority learned that the man who lived in that apartment was experiencing a crisis and had climbed to the roof of the building. Officers worked to communicate with him, but he refused to come down. Our Crisis Negotiators and the UCHealth CORE Team responded and continued attempts to gain his cooperation. At 1:20 this afternoon, first responders successfully convinced him to come down safely. He was uninjured during the incident and was transported to receive evaluation and crisis care.

Thanks to PFA and UCHealth for their collaboration during this challenging incident. At 164.5 personnel hours between our three agencies, this was a resource-intensive situation, and we are extremely grateful for their ongoing partnership in keeping our community members safe!

This morning, we welcomed three recruits to the Front Range Fire Consortium Academy. At the beginning of each academy, PFA holds an internal organizational welcome (a meet and greet) to introduce recruits to the organization. While this is usually held in-person at Station 1, COVID-19 measures presented the opportunity to find a creative way to spend the morning together. Recruits were introduced via video stream and one participated from a separate location. They pulled their masks down momentarily for a quick photo. We may be apart, but we are still able to celebrate together. As always, the class is made up of people from diverse backgrounds and interests. This class includes a Fort Collins native and Navy veteran, a career firefighter with over a decade of experience, and a Crossfit coach passionate about helping people live healthy lives. We can’t wait to see all you bring to the PFA family. Welcome Class 2020-2!
