Welcome to the Sugarloaf Fire Protection District

The Sugar Loaf Fire Protection District (SLFPD) is located approximately 7 miles west of Boulder, Colorado, and includes parts of CO Highway 119, Sugar Loaf Road and Magnolia Road. The District encompasses 17 square miles and ranges in elevation from 6,000 to 8,500 feet above sea level. The SLFPD includes approximately 500 homes, a water treatment plant for the city of Boulder, Boulder County Open Space, City of Boulder Mountain Parks, and several thousand acres of Arapahoe-Roosevelt National Forest. The SLFPD is served by an all volunteer department, which usually varies between 30 and 45 members. We typically respond to about 110 calls each year including motor vehicle accidents, smoke reports, structure fires, wildfires, fallen climbers, lost hikers, and a variety of medical emergencies.
