A LONG HISTORY OF SERVICE

The Divide Fire Department was formed in 1949 when Divide got its first fire truck.  After spending a few years merged with Florissant as the Divide-Florissant Volunteer Fire Department, in 1999 the two departments separated once again. A few years

later we adopted our current name,

Divide Fire Protection District.

DFPD provides fire, medical, and rescue services to the Divide and its surrounding subdivisions and national forests, as well as mutual aid to surrounding fire districts. These services are provided on a completely volunteer basis by members of our community.

Divide Fire District

Divide Fire's district covers significant portions of Pike National Forest and Mueller State Park, along with the downtown Divide area. Approximately 2200 residences are scattered throughout the district in fourteen major subdivisions. The Divide Fire Protection District is considered an "urban/wildland interface area" with most residential structures nestled into the wooded hillsides.

The district is currently served by two fire stations. The primary station is the Shoemaker Station 1, at 103 Cedar Mountain Road. A 1700 square foot training facility was completed at this location in 2006. The facility has a state-of-the-art audio/visual system that is used extensively to train DFPD volunteers and other Teller County responders in all aspects of emergency service. The Rainbow Valley Substation was added in 2004 and is located at 18602 Highway 67 South.
