Golder Ranch and Mountain Vista Fire Districts have agreed to merge together after a unanimous vote to approve a consolidation.

According to a press release from Golder Ranch Fire District, Mountain Vista Fire District will cease to exist and will be absorbed by Golder Ranch. This includes firefighters, and staff employed by MVFD.

This is a demonstration of how collaborative relationships in public safety can maximize efficiencies. This is an exciting time for both our districts and for the community we serve. I’m so happy to welcome the MVFD personnel into our GRFD family, commented Fire Chief Randy Karrer.

Golder Ranch says that this merger will mean a streamlined approach to fire suppression and emergency medical services.

This consolidation will help us to continue to put our community first by providing exceptional services and efficient response times, commented Fire Chief Cheryl Horvath.
