To Our Fort Lupton Community,

We are entering Thanksgiving week. We all have many things to be thankful for and also during these trying times many of our family or community members may be suffering from health issues, financial difficulties, unemployment, stress, and many do not have a warm place to sleep or know where their next meal is coming from. Now is the time to not only be thankful but be willing to help out those in need. It is just awesome to see our community come together during this time every year. That is what makes Fort Lupton a great place to call home.

There are also many challenges going on right now with the pandemic and there are many thoughts about remote learning in our schools, restricting small businesses, to wear or not to wear a mask, politics, vaccines, hospital capacities, and on and on. We just want everyone to stay healthy and protect your well being, support our local businesses, and help those in need. The next couple of months will be critical for our community as we must do our part to stop the spread of COVID-19 and help our community, local, small businesses, schools, families, and community members get back to where we were pre COVID-19.

At the Fire Department we have been very active in taking actions to prevent the potential exposure to COVID-19. So far we have been very successful in doing so and we are enhancing our actions against the spread. Unlike most work places, all of our staff live, cook, socialize, and spend free time together at the end of the workday because they are at the station for 48 hours. This presents some significant challenges in keeping everyone healthy. We depend on our staff to limit contacts outside of immediate family and travel while not at work. While this is not easy, it is imperative we do so for the safety and health of everyone both in and outside of our organization.

We screen all of our staff multiple times per day and before every shift. With our County moving to status Red due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we wanted to remind you that we still have our stations and administration offices closed to visitors. We continue to require masks and social distancing inside the stations. Our community continues to experience it's share of COVID-19 cases. With hopes of a better 2021 and a COVID-19 vaccine on the horizon, it is imperative we persevere and take care of one another.

We hope you are able to celebrate this Thanksgiving with your immediate family as we will be doing the same and celebrating with only those in our immediate fire family at the fire stations.

This present surge will not subside without all of us taking some steps to stop the spread. Please do your part.

As always we thank you for your support of our agency as we strive to not only respond to, but take care of our community with a small town commitment.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Phil Tiffany
Fire Chief

We have received several 911 calls about the fire along Hwy 85 at MM 242. The fire does have several areas that will continue to smolder and give off smoke. The areas that smolder are well in the burned area and very difficult to extinguish. Strong winds would be the only concern or if you see a new fire.
