The La Veta Fire Protection District proudly protects an area of 210 square miles. This volunteer fire department has served the Cuchara Valley in Huerfano County since 1949. The new Station #1 is just off of Main Street in La Veta.

Like most other departments, many of the calls within our district are medical-related. But we also respond to a significant number of structure and wildland fire calls as well as mutual aid for neighboring fire departments in Walsenburg, Gardner and adjacent counties.

We provide basic life support emergency medical services including Advanced Life Support transport.
