Serving Northwestern Fremont County, Colorado
The TFPD is located in the Rocky Mountains, in northwestern Fremont County, Colorado, and named for the Tallahassee Creek southeast of Waugh Mountain. The District encompasses 361 square miles. We respond in an area which includes Parkdale, County Road 11, State Highway 9 to Park County, and the U.S. Highway 50 corridor from the intersection with Highway 9 to Texas Creek. Most of this rugged land is sparsely inhabited and our population is concentrated in a handful of subdivisions, ranches and valleys. Approximately half of our fire protection area is either state or federal land. Our elevations range from 6,200 feet in the southeast to the 11,709-foot summit of Waugh Mountain.
