Wildland Firefighting

North Metro Fire Rescue’s Wildland Team was formally established and equipped in 2000. Over the years, the Wildland Team has served as a local, state and federal resource, deploying to fires throughout Colorado and the Western United States.

The other two are Type 6 brush trucks, which are primarily used to attack area brush fires. However, they have also been deployed as a federal resource.
