IT HAS BEEN A LONG ROAD TO GET OUR FIRE DEPARTMENT UP AND RUNNING, BUT WE MADE IT!
APPROXIMATELY 30 YEARS BUT WHO’S COUNTING

Yes, about thirty years ago the people of the now Carson Community Association thought about getting a fire department for the community. Several attempts were made but the timing and the number of people available were not enough to pull it off. At the turn of this century, the community say some growth. In 1995 and again in 2008 other attempts were underway, the fourth wave as it were.

Then by 2010 the pieces started to slowly fall in place and we kept moving forward. By July of 2011 we were steaming ahead as we teamed up with the Ojo Caliente Fire Department as fire fighters and for needed training.

The Carson Volunteer Fire and Rescue Department is a 501c3 non profit organization. This means that your contributions to our fire department are tax deductible. So if you are looking to do some good with your money may I encourage you to seriously consider making a tax deductible donation to  our fire department. We are new and needing almost everything form trucks to personal safety equipment, to a fire house. We are now entering the wild fire season and need to get outfitted asap.
