The Kremmling Fire Protection District covers 360 square miles of western Grand County, Colorado. Our service area (the district boundary) encompasses 136 square miles, which includes the town of Kremmling and surrounding rural residential areas. The response area includes 47 miles of US Highway 40, from milepost 199 in the east, to milepost 152 in the west. Additionally, we cover 16 miles of Colorado Highway 9, and 16 miles of Colorado Highway 134. These main highways also include two mountain passes (Gore Pass and Rabbit Ears Pass).
Grand County lies between the resort communities of Winter Park to the east, Summit County to the south, and Steamboat Springs to the northwest. Thus, we have a significant volume of commuter and tourist traffic flowing through our response area in both winter and summer months. As a result of these geographic and socio-economic factors, motor vehicle accidents make up one-third of our incident responses annually.
