Our Mission


The Mission of F.I.R.E. is to educate, develop, and foster prospective firefighters and the future leaders of the Denver Fire Department through equality, life-long learning, service to the community, and mental fitness. 

Core Values:

  • Equal Opportunity: We will promote equality in the fire service, through our diverse and inclusive employee group. We will serve as a continued example of duty, respect and integrity in the organization, the department, the fire service and the community we serve.
  • Education: We are committed to the education of F.I.R.E. members and developing their life-long learning through formal and informal models, along with mentoring, tutoring, and organizational investment in their self-development.
  • Community Service: We will contribute to the community through a spirit of service by volunteering, mentoring, and tutoring. We will continually uphold the higher standard and expectations entrusted to us by the community.
  • Mental Fitness: Mental fitness like physical fitness is an active ongoing endeavor. We are committed to furthering the cause of mental/behavioral health in the fire service as well as advocating for resources and services through a collaboration of internal and external partnerships, and by spearheading new opportunities that enhance and support the mental fitness of our members.
