About Us

West Metro Fire Rescue is a full-service, all-hazard, fire and rescue agency, serving nearly 300,000 residents in the cities and towns of Lakewood, Morrison, Golden, Wheat Ridge and Edgewater. The district also serves sections of Jefferson and Douglas County and unincorporated Littleton, Colorado. West Metro was created in 1995 after the community voted to consolidate the Lakewood Fire Protection District and Bancroft Fire Protection District. We have more than 400 full-time firefighters who staff 17 stations with 47 civilian staff members. Our district covers more than 108 square miles. WMFR is committed to providing professional fire protection, emergency medical services, life safety, and community service with a vision that shapes the future. “Whatever it takes… to serve.”
