South Metro Fire Rescue is a result of the combination of numerous departments. South Metro originally started as the Castlewood Fire Protection District in 1951. In 1985, Castle Pines Fire Department joined and North Douglas County Fire Protection District joined Castlewood. In 1989, Cherry Hills Fire Department joined Castlewood. Castlewood Fire Protection District switched to the South Metro Fire Rescue name in 1999. In 2000, Louviers Fire Protection District joined South Metro.
Parker Fire Protection District and South Metro Fire Rescue consolidated operations on April 24, 2008, creating the Parker-South Metro Fire Authority and briefly operated under that name before adopting the South Metro Fire Rescue Authority (SMFRA) name in September 2008. Parker & South Metro completed their merge on January 1, 2016, dissolving the Authority and returning to the South Metro Fire Rescue name. Cunningham Fire Rescue consolidated operations with South Metro on January 1, 2018. South Metro achieved an ISO Class 1 rating in that same year, becoming the first department in the country to receive a Class 1 rating in the hauled water / non-hydrant areas of their district. Littleton Fire Rescue merged with South Metro Fire Rescue on January 1, 2019, resulting in the creation of Colorado’s second largest fire department.
