About the Division
From the city's 10 fire stations, operational personnel respond to over 19,800 emergency calls during 2014, utilizing 10 Advanced Life Support (ALS) engines, a truck / ladder company, heavy rescue squad, and an airport crash unit.
The Pueblo Fire Department provides services to mitigate the effects of a variety of emergency situations, including fires, medical emergencies, physical entrapment, and releases of hazardous materials. Providing these services is the responsibility of our fire suppression personnel.

Resources within the Emergency Services Division include 129 uniformed men and women who deliver services from the strategic location of 10 fire stations, staffed 24 hours a day. Fire companies are normally staffed with a captain, engineer, emergency medical officer, or firefighter.
In addition to fire suppression and emergency work, these members provide a wide range of services to the community, including fire inspections, blood-pressure screening, tours of fire stations and apparatus, and fire and life safety presentations within the community.
The Pueblo Fire Department has kept pace with the ever-increasing challenges that face a modern day fire service through its own special operations members. This team of highly trained firefighters responds to calls that the average trained firefighter is unable to handle.
These members are specially trained in the disciplines of hazardous materials, rope / high-angle rescue, swift water rescue, confined space rescue, and trench rescue. They also respond regionally under county-wide mutual aide agreements to successfully handle emergencies requiring their special talents.
There are currently 6 members that serve on Colorado Task Force-1.
