August 21st is National Senior Citizens Day! It’s our chance to recognize the achievements of the more mature representatives of our community. For the past couple of years, #FrontRangeFireRescue has enjoyed monthly visits at the Johnstown and Milliken Senior Centers. Firefighters do blood pressure checks and catch up with the community. Unfortunately, COVID has put a damper on that activity.
This picture was taken by one of our senior friends last time we were able to meet. Their wealth of knowledge, skill, and life experience offers so much to the next generation. We look forward to the end of the pandemic and being able to have regular visits again.
Today is an excellent day to phone, text, or video call the senior citizens in your life!

A Fire Weather Watch has been issued for part of our district over the next couple of days. Nearby, a Red Flag Warning has been posted. This morning, we again are sending out part of our wildland firefighting team to the @CameronPeakFire. This deployment is the result of expected increased fire conditions over the next few days.
As we head into fall, you should know that here in Colorado, fire season can encompass all 12 months in some years. Please use extreme caution, have a personal emergency plan, and always stay alert to changes in the weather forecast.
