Dedication & Open House
On May 18th, 2019 North Metro Fire Rescue District hosted a new engines ceremony and open house at Station 61 in Broomfield. The public learned about this history and traditions of fire departments. Water was transferred from “old” Engine 67 to “new” Engine 67. “Old” Engine 67 was then released and put in reserve status. Engine 67 and Engine 61 served the district for 15 years and over 57,000 emergency calls combined, both will now serve as reserve engines. After a blessing by the district Chaplin, children were invited to help wash the tires on the brand new engines. After the washing, they were invited to help push the new engines back in to the station bay. The public was served light refreshments and allowed to tour the new engines. The two new engines are Engine 51 and Engine 67, both engines are 2019 Pierce Velocity with a 500 gallon water tank and 1500 gpm pump with foam.
