Jan. 17, 2023 Update

At the Summit Fire & EMS Board meeting, Chief Davis provided the latest information about the station to the Board and the public. Among the highlights:

  • SF&EMS will sign a contract with Buffalo Mountain Storage to rent one of its new RV units for the staging of an unstaffed fire engine. The unit is being retrofitted with insulation, power and heat, and when it becomes available, it will extend the "reach" of the five-mile radius north as far as Summit Sky Ranch, for ISO purposes.
  • RFPs for the lead planning and construction firm for the new Silverthorne fire station will be available for download on this website on Monday, Jan. 23, and the window will be open until the end of business on Monday, Feb. 27.
  • Groundbreaking for the new fire station, assuming all goes smoothly in the permitting, contracting and materials-acquisition processes, is anticipated to be in the fall of 2023. 

If you have other questions about our efforts to establish a new fire station in Silverthorne, please feel free to contact the SF&EMS Community Resource Officer at While we will answer your inquiry personally, your question may be one shared by lots of others in the community, and, if so, we also would like to include our response here.

Also, please revisit this page periodically, as we will provide updates in our progress in links added here.
