Welcome to Norwood Fire Protection District’s website. The Norwood Fire Protection District was established in 1932 as the Norwood Volunteer Fire Department and covered 18 square miles. In 1953, we became the Norwood Redvale Volunteer Fire Department which covered the towns of Norwood and Redvale consisting of 70 square miles. Then in 2008 we transitioned into the Norwood Fire Protection District which provides emergency medical services, structural and wildland fire suppression, rescue and hazardous materials response to an area of over 385 square miles with approximately 3000 residents in San Miguel County, Colorado.
The Norwood Fire Protection District (NFPD) is an “all-hazard” fire district that responds to the needs of our community regardless of the nature of the incident. In 2018, the NFPD responded to 399 calls which are answered by our extremely dedicated 40-member volunteer members. This group of volunteers have dedicated their lives to serving their families, friends, neighbors and community without any expected gratitude or rewards.
The Norwood Fire Protection District is dedicated to creating a safe environment for the residents, visitors and employees of the Norwood community. Our primary responsibility is the preservation of life and property by providing EMS, fire and rescue services through unity and teamwork.
