The Manitou Springs Volunteer Fire Station was built in 1965. Originally the building was 35 feet by 44 feet and housed two engines. An addition was added in 1985-86 that expanded the size to 70 feet by 44 feet. Our station is now home to two fire engines, a quick response paramedic vehicle, a brush truck, a water tender, two motorcycles, and a UTV. The second story of the station contains a meeting/community room, full kitchen, four bedrooms, computer room, and an office for our officers. In the recent years our department has undergone a major facelift to include a new roof, new garage doors, a new bay floor, and a fresh coat of paint. Our station was built by the volunteers and most of the remodel was completed by our paid staff and volunteers.
