Boulder Fire Department

May 10th, 2012

5-10-12While out riding, I met Hero Firefighters, Jennifer, Chris and Joe as they arrived at the Administration building in Boulder. They were nice to take the time to talk with me about all the services the Boulder Fire Department performs. Boulder’s Firefighters do a lot more than fight fires. ¬†Every Firefighter is a state certified Emergency Medical Technician. Every engine crew is equipped with, and trained to operate, a Cardiac Defibrillator. They are prepared to; deal with flooding in a business or house; extricate someone from a vehicle accident; rescue people from a stalled elevator or a collapsed trench; effectively deal with carbon monoxide alarms or tree branches on power lines. Many of Boulder’s Firefighters have advanced training in dive rescue, hazardous material spills, wildland fire fighting, or fire safety education.
This town is filled with families visiting for graduation tomorrow, there is no room at the inn, so to speak. I love the crowded streets and sidewalks. Information about The Kindness Bicycle Ride for Heroes spread in a big way today.
