Fire Station 43 is located at 419 Last Chance Dr. Former Rifle Fire Protection District Station 3.

This station is closed for 911 response and is used for wildland operations. A failed mill-levy increase in 2020 caused budget cuts which included staffing for this station. This location will only house the wildland team apparatus and a few spare units until the department can fund the hiring of new firefighters for this firehouse.
