First Responder Service


The Colorado Centre Metropolitan District is committed to the safety of our residents and communities. In 2009 CCMD re-opened our local fire station at 4770 Horizonview Drive and staffed it with two full-time, paid firefighters available on a 24/7 rotation, bringing our maximum response time down to less than 4 minutes!

The CCMD First Responder Service is funded by a $22.00 monthly service charge paid by our residential and commercial customers.

Additionally, CCMD maintains an agreement with the Colorado Springs Fire Department as the principal source of fire and emergency services protection within the CCMD. CCMD provides a fire engine in exchange for service from CSFD. This engine is housed at Station 11, approximately 12 minutes away from CCMD.

The Colorado Centre Fire Department received an ISO PPC classification of 2/2x.

ISO’s Public Protection Classifications

(PPCs) are important to communities because most U.S. insurers use PPC information to determine the premiums it charges their policyholders. Communities whose PPC improves may get lower insurance premiums for residential, commercial, and industrial properties.
