Hi. If you have a fireman or fire chief who driveS a dark gray tundra with license plate 492 YOS you need to do a medical evaluation on him. This man was in uniform with badge and fireman license plat...e bracket and exited in your district. I was driving south on i25 today when he sped up to cut me off and immediately slammed on his brakes. I reacted by changing lanes and continuing until he caught up to me and tried to get into my lane coming within centimeters of my vehicle. Having his missing finger out the window I could tell he was mentally unstable. For about 10 minutes he tried over a dozen times to get into my lane by swerving directing at me and slowing down to 20 miles per hour on the freeway. Please check your resources. A police report has been made and this guy needs to be fired. I held my cool behind the wheel but this guy is a grade A POS. See More

South Metro Fire Rescue is a national leader in the fire service. Incredibly innovative, yet down to earth, covering the South Metro Denver area. If you're in the area, you're in good hands. South Fire, along with other great neighboring departments like Littleton, West Metro and Castlerock, are all highly trained and highly skilled departments. I'm proud of my 26 years as a firefighter with SMFR! See More

Thanks for looking out for us in the Veridian Apts this morning. Nice to know you all are there so quick when the fire suppression system is activated.

As a child of a fireman, I have always been intrigued by this field of service. When my now 11 year old daughter was 2, we were at the gas station as the same time as one of the South Metro crews. W...hile they were filing up the truck they took the time to show her their truck, even letting her play with buttons (the sirens are very loud). That was the first experience she truly had with firemen and fire trucks. Ever since that day she will yell out "look mommy! Firetruck!" Even now that she is 11 she still yells it out and it has become a running joke. If she isn't in the car someone else will say it. Because of that initial experience, her future goal when she grows up is to be a fireman. She has since toured several fire stations including on a military flightline and can't get enough trucks. Thank you for planting that seed in my daughter. See More

We have always had such amazing experiences with the South Metro Fire Rescue. We had an oil fire a few years back and they were amazing. We often see different firefighters around town. They are so fr...iendly and make a point to smile and wave at my kiddos! Today was no different. They made my 4 year old son's day today! Not only did they say hi, they asked him about his day and gave him knuckles and high fives. He couldn't stop talking about it! Thank you for not only doing amazing work, but being amazing role models! See More

The South Metro team took great care of my family and I when we didn't have enough time to get to the hospital and had an unplanned home birth. My husband took our two year old down to say thank you and they were just as caring and took the time to show her around and make her feel special. Thank you for all you do to keep our community safe and for going above and beyond! We are truly grateful! See More

Our family went for a walk this morning and happened to be walking by a gas station where one of the fire trucks was filling up. The firefighters took time out of their day to show our girls the truck... inside and out and enthusiastically answered ever single question they had (and being 4 and 6, I can assure you there were plenty). THANK YOU for all you do! We so appreciate you all. See More

At 10:45 p.m. on Sunday, South Metro and Franktown Fire Protection District Firefighters responded to a house fire on Buckhorn Creek Street in Parker. Engine 46 was first to arrive and quickly extinguished a fire burning under a covered patio. The occupants of the home safely evacuated and no damage to the interior of the house occurred. Approximately 35 fire personnel as well several officers from Parker Police Department responded. A barbecue was left on, heated surrounding combustibles and started the fire.
A sight like this one might blow people away and “Fan 3” also blows away harmful vapors like the Freon leak inside Sam’s Club at Quebec and C-470. We don’t use it very often but we have to be prepared for anything. Firefighters are ventilating the building so the store can get back in business.

On Wednesday, February 22, 2018, 10th Special Forces Group Commander Colonel Lawrence Ferguson made a special visit to Greenwood Village. Recently Col. Ferguson rode in a dignified honors procession for a fallen soldier and observed what many of our community members have, law enforcement and fire department vehicles on highway overpasses with first responders saluting. Col. Ferguson was grateful for our agencies coming together to honor fall soldiers and their family and took time out of his extremely busy schedule to personally thank everyone. The SMFR Honor Guard, Pipes and Drums, Executive Chiefs and several on-duty crews welcomed the Colonel along with members of City of Greenwood Village, Colorado Government Police, Aurora Fire Rescue, Denver Fire Department, Douglas County Sheriff's Office, Federal Protection Agency and Larkspur Fire Protection District. The brief visit was concluded with a customary exchange of challenge coins via handshake and a few photos.

Firefighter Todd Hennessy’s ride in Engine 44 yesterday afternoon was something that Hollywood movies are made of. It was the first time in 2 months that he sat in the same riding position where he died on the morning of December 11, 2017.

While returning to the firehouse from a medical emergency, Probationary Firefighter Bryan Vogt (who was working his very first shift at SMFR) noticed that something was wrong. Engineer Eric Kapitan safely drove the Engine to a stop at P...eoria and Oswego while Lieutenant Dee Lindsey called on the radio for more help. Vogt, Kapitan and Lindsey pulled Firefighter Hennessy out of the Engine, immediately began CPR and used an AED to restart his heart. It worked remarkably fast. Before the Medic Unit could arrive, Firefighter Hennessy was awake, confused and breathing just fine.

Firefighter Hennessy credits receiving help as quickly as possible to his survival and encourages everyone to learn CPR. The South Metro Safety Foundation can teach you, here is a link to upcoming classes in Parker and Centennial…

We love it when our neighbors stop by the firehouse and since Denver Broncos headquarters is just down the street, it makes for an extra fun station tour. Thanks to Trevor Siemian and Ring of Famer Billy Thompson for visiting Firehouse 35 this morning!

We often share the great work SMFR personnel do on a daily basis, sometimes those stories involve loss and sadness. This is a heart warming story that began 2 months ago when Firefighter Hennessy’s heart stopped beating. It happened inside the fire engine, driving down the road and could have ended in tragedy. His fellow firefighters, including one working their very first shift, saved his life. Two of those rescuers are pictured here (Left to right, Probationary Firefighter Vogt, Firefighter Hennessy and Engineer Kapitan). We are so grateful for their lifesaving actions and that Firefighter Hennessy is here today talking about it.
