FIRE STATION 

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