Frederick-Firestone Fire Protection District’s Technical Rescue Team has been accepted as a participating agency for the Colorado Urban Search and Rescue Task Force (Colorado Task Force 1 or CO-TF1).
The Colorado Task Force 1 is an integral part of the Federal Emergency Management Agency’s (FEMA) National Urban Search & Rescue (US&R) Response System, as well as a local and state resource.
“We look forward to the strong, cooperative relationship and serving as a participating agency for Colorado Task Force 1 to include serving alongside West Metro Fire Rescue, Lakewood, Colorado which is the sponsoring agency for CO-TF1,” said FFFPD Fire Chief Jeremy Young. “This relationship helps ensure that CO-TF1 is ready to respond when needed to any local, state or national requests with highly trained and qualified personnel.”
Agreements are in place with FEMA, State of Colorado and CO-TF1 sponsoring agency West Metro Fire Rescue and participating agencies such as Frederick-Firestone Fire Protection District which make the task force response ready should a need arise.
