Bennett-Watkins Fire Rescue is a fast-growing combination fire department covering 325 square miles throughout the Town of Bennett, Town of & unincorporated Adams and Arapahoe counties.
Two full time ALS staffed fire stations running over 1,200 calls per year (with a 3rd station coming into service late 2023/early 2024).
We are looking for dedicated individuals who have what it takes to run in when everyone around them is running out. If you have ever thought about joining the fire service or becoming an EMS provider, Bennett-Watkins Fire Rescue will give you the experience and training you need to start your fire or EMS career.
As a volunteer you will gain valuable training in firefighting, hazardous materials, and medical response during Fire Academy* and the volunteer probationary period. Volunteers holding an EMS certification may take advantage of regular, free continuing education and free refresher courses.
Out-of-district volunteers are assigned to a specific shift (A, B, or C) and are required to work a minimum of 36 hours per month. In-district volunteers are expected to respond to a minimum of 10 percent of all calls throughout the year. All members - paid and volunteer - are subject to minimum continuing education and training requirements. Explore more of the benefits of volunteering and consider applying to our next academy!*
*Bennett-Watkins Fire Rescue will not be having a firefighter recruit academy in 2023. If you are already certified and would like to volunteer - we would love to hear from you!
