Station Closure Notification

  • Station Closure Notice
  • As you know, Eagle River Fire Protection District is no longer able to afford to keep all of its five Fire and Emergency Response Stations open 24 hours/day, 365 days/year.  This decision is a result of the loss of approximately 25% of its property tax revenue beginning in 2012. 

    Consequently, below is a list of forced station closures.

    Our goal remains to arrive as quickly as possible to fires and other emergencies.  However, anytime we are forced to temporarily close a Fire and Emergency Response Station, no matter where it is located, that closure places an additional burden on the rest of our response system, from Tennessee Pass to Wolcott, potentially resulting in longer response times. 

    We regret having to take these measures but simply have no choice.  We want to keep you informed of how the District’s budgetary constraints affect the services you receive and will update you regarding future intermittent station closures as they may have to occur.

     Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact Fire Chief, Karl Bauer at
