Welcome to the home of the Platte Valley Fire Protection District!


The Platte Valley Fire Protection District (PVFPD) was officially established in 1954 to serve the Town of Kersey, community of Gill, and the surrounding unincorporated areas in Weld County, Colorado to provide the citizens of our district with professional emergency services responding to fire, EMS, and rescue incidents as well as citizen assists, community events, fire prevention training, and more. Platte Valley Fire Protection District is considered a special district in the State of Colorado and is governed by a board of publicly elected Directors who reside within the District.



We welcome you to browse around and learn more about our District. Inside you will find a wealth of information for yourself, your neighbors, and your children. Please feel free to call or email us at anytime with questions you may have, or stop by the station for a visit.


Dave Carpenter March 3rd, 2014 was Dave Carpenter’s last night as a volunteer here at Platte Valley Fire Protection District. Thank you Dave for ten years of service and dedication to the district and surrounding communities. His passion for the fire service will be missed greatly. Lucky for us he still lives in district so he won’t be far!
