The Volunteer Fire Department of Big Elk is an all volunteer 501c3 / Fire Department. As Volunteers and within the capabilities of our equipment and training, we are pledged to protect the people of the Big Elk Meadows community area from emergencies and natural disasters and to render assistance in the event of medical emergencies. Beyond immediate safety of our neighbors, we also strive to protect the forest that surround us and the homes in which we live.

We also help provide home assessments and information for our local Firewise community in the mountains of Colorado.
