​About The Crested Butte Fire & EMS Volunteer Squad & Association


The Crested Butte Fire & EMS Volunteer Squad is made up of Volunteer Firefighters & EMTs as well as staff members who generously dedicate their time, efforts and expertise to the Crested Butte Fire Protection District (CBFPD). The Volunteer Squad is part of the Crested Butte Fire & EMS Volunteer Association which is a 501(c)3 Non-Profit organization. As a Volunteer Squad/Association, we raise funds throughout the year for our Fallen Firefighter Fund which was established to assist members and/or their families in a time of injury or illness. The Volunteer Squad also supports other local charities and fund raising activities within our community and throughout the Gunnison Valley. One of our main goals is to provide for our members who dedicate not only their time but risk their lives for their neighbors and community in which they live. 


The Crested Butte Fire and EMS Squad also facilitates cooperation between the CBFPD and its volunteers and

promotes our dedicated members in the cause of safety, life and property preservation.  


The Crested Butte Fire Dept. is always looking for Volunteers! If you are looking for a way to give back to your community and are a team player... WE NEED YOU!
