The Tri-Lakes Monument Fire Protection District uses two ratings for our fire district as of September 30, 2014, provided you are within 5 road miles of a fire station and reside within the fire district (a Tri-Lakes Monument Fire Protection District levy is on your annual property tax bill.)

Rating
  • Class 3 for all properties located within 1000' of a fire hydrant
  • Class 3Y for all other properties

If you are beyond 5 road miles from a fire station than you have the following ratings:
  • Class 10W for all properties located within 1000' from a water source
  • Class 10 for all properties located farther than 1000' from a water source

Vehicle Information
  •  each engine carries 750 gallons of water ( We have three)
  •  ladder truck carries 300 gallons of water

Mutual aid from other districts would increase number of gallons available if needed.
Each engine and ladder truck carries three fire extinguishers (dry chemical, CO2 and water), as well as 20 gallons of foam + 10 additional. 

Fire Stations
TLMFPD is a careered department (no volunteers) that man three fire stations 24 hours a day.
Station 1-18650 Hwy 105                         -Ladder truck and engine
Station 2-18460 Rollercoaster Road       -Engine
Station 3-1855 Woodmoor Drive            -Engine

Response Times
Times are very difficult to predict due to inclement weather. For best estimate, Google distance from the house in question to the nearest fire station.

ISO's main rating criteria is now generally performance oriented meaning ratings are largely based on the quantity of water a fire department crew can flow and the duration of the flow.   Cistern-supported areas with fire hydrants can qualify for a Class 3 rating provided there is a minimum of 30,000 gallons of water in the cistern.
