Station 20

All the latest updates on South Metro's newly-proposed Fire Station #20

Station 20

South Metro is proposing a new, approximately 8,420 gross square foot single story fire station (Station 20) in Highlands Ranch. The design will provide the apparatus bay space and the necessary functional spaces of a modern fire station. This new station reduces emergency response times to an area of Highlands Ranch that has experienced historically extended response times. This new station is a commitment that South Metro Fire Rescue  made to Highlands Ranch as part of its inclusion into the Fire Authority.

We are excited to provide a new level of service to the citizens of Highlands Ranch with this additional fire station. We anticipate opening the station in fall of 2020.  South Metro will continue to post updates and information to our website on this new station, as it becomes available.
