Mountain View Fire Rescue is proud to serve the District through the Community Outreach Division, which provides educational programs across the District with the goal of prevention of loss of life, property, and injury. These programs have been developed based on call statistics to provide a targeted approach to preventing emergencies that are most prevalent in the communities MVFR serves.

MVFR regularly attends community events such as Erie Town Fair, Carbon Valley Music Festival, Mead Community Days, Niwot Lefthander’s Day, and many more. The Community Outreach Division brings Sparky the Fire Safety Dog and the Barnyard Safety Buddies program to these events to teach citizens of all ages about 911, smoke alarms, bike helmets, pedestrian safety, poison control, water safety, and seat belts.

MVFR also provides specialized training by offering car seat checks and CPR/First Aid classes. Station Tours provide an opportunity for smaller organizations to visit a Station and learn about a firefighter’s gear and apparatus. The Juvenile Firesetter program reaches at-risk youth with education about the dangers of the misuse of fire. MVFR partners with Active Adults of Erie and the Mead Senior Club to provide monthly free blood pressure checks and the File of Life program helps to provide crucial medical history information to crews during an emergency.  We also co-host Stepping On a Fall Prevention workshop for seniors with UCHealth.  Our community outreach assistants teach a Matter of Balance course, an 8-week structured group intervention that emphasizes practical strategies to reduce the fear of falling and increase activity levels.  In October, during Fire Prevention Month, MVFR visits over 2000 elementary school children with a lesson about 911 and home fire safety.

Mountain View Fire Rescue is honored to serve its citizens by taking an active role in the community. If you would like more information about any of our educational programs, please contact education@mvfpd.org
