North Washington Volunteer Fire Department, formed in 1946. In 1974 the department became paid and named changed to the North Washington Fire Department. In 1998, NWFD and Northglenn Ambulance partnered to provide NWFD’s first dedicated ambulance services, operating three Advanced Life Support (SLA) ambulances. Over the next two years, the service was transitioned. All of the ambulance personnel became firefighters/employees for NWFD, and Northglenn was phased out.

North Washington Fire Rescue merged with Southwest Adams County Fire Protection District (Colorado) to form the Adams County Fire Rescue (Colorado) in 2015.

North Washington Fire Protection District was a member of the Tri-County Volunteer Firemen’s Association.
