As Fire Chief of the Harrods Creek Fire Protection District (HCFPD), I have the opportunity to serve in a destination community for both citizens and visitors. The Harrods Creek Fire Protection District is fortunate to have the finest fire service professionals in the state. The men and women of the HCFPD are highly trained, extremely motivated, well educated, and loyally focused on their core mission of serving the community.
HCFPD has a rich history of service to a growing community and now offers comprehensive fire, hazardous incident response and emergency medical services in a community of approximately 22,000 citizens in a 20 square mile area.
The HCFPD is a core member of the Jefferson County Fire Service and participates in automatic aid with neighboring fire districts. This system ensures that the closest available appropriate resource responds to calls for service regardless of municipal jurisdiction and that an orderly and reliable incident command system is utilized.
Your HCFPD Firefighters have bravely and successfully confronted the hazards of our growing suburban environment, and continue to mitigate complex life safety problems through risk management, strategic planning, disciplined deployment, and an aggressive fire attack and rescue philosophy. The hard-working professionals of the HCFPD are dedicated first and foremost to guarding the quality of life for the citizens and visitors of our community through multi-dimensional emergency response and the protection of life, property, and the environment.
It is our mission to Preserve Life and Property through Prevention, Education and Response.
