Nederland Fire provides a wide range of emergency services to an estimated 56 square miles, including the Town of Nederland, the town site of Eldora, the Eldora Ski Area and a vast expanse of public lands.
Our Western boundary is the Continental Divide. Our Eastern boundary is roughly 31.5-mile marker of Boulder Canyon, Northern is ~1/8th mile north of Sugarloaf Road (the first 1-1 1/2 miles of Sugarloaf Rd are in our District. However, there is a joint response area where both Nederland & Sugarloaf FPD respond to roughly 10 thru 6 mm of Sugarloaf Road. Our Southern Boundary is just north of Hwy 72 (Coal Creek Canyon) and about the first 1 mile of Magnolia Road is in our District.
We also respond to our neighboring fire departments to assist whenever needed. When staffing and equipment permit, we will assist on large scale wildland fires such as the 4-Mile, High Park, Black Forest, and other large fires. Our primary directive is to protect our community, however during time of need, sending crews to endangered areas provides critical help to these communities while obtaining skills and knowledge for use in our community.
If in doubt as to whether you are in our District, check your property tax statement, it will indicate to what Fire District you pay taxes to.
