The Lower Valley Fire Protection District and the town of Fruita organized a fire district in 1973. The district split from the town and in 1980 became its own separate district. Both volunteer and paid positions make up the district and provide fire protection as well as emergency medical services. A Board of Directors consisting of five elected members governs the district.

     Population of the district ranges between 8,500 and 10,000 persons. We operate out of two fire stations, Station 31 is located in Fruita and houses 3 Ambulances, 2 Engines, 2 Brush trucks, 1 Water Tender, 1 River Boat and 2 ATV's. Station 32 is five miles to the west in Loma and houses 1 Water Tender, 1 Ladder, 1 Rescue and our Antique truck.


     Coverage of the district amounts to approximately 200 square miles for fire protection and approximately 400 square miles for ambulance services. In addition to this, Lower Valley Fire District provides the fire protection and medical services to Country Jam and Rock Jam, along with various stand by's for certain events.
