The Golden Gate Fire Protection District (GGFPD) is a municipal district in the foothills of western Jefferson County, Colorado. GGFPD administers the organization and finance of the tax-supported volunteer Fire Dept, which is the primary agency responsible for health and safety in our District. Our firefighters and EMTs are the first-responders for fire and medical emergencies in our over 40 sq mile district of rural, wildland-urban interface. The District has a Community Wildfire Protection Plan and was recognized as a Firewise community in 2017 . We are seeking ways to improve our resilience as a fire adapted community.
