The West Metro Fire Rescue Foundation, in partnership with the City of Lakewood, is constructing a historic representation of the Lakewood-Mountair Station #1 at the Lakewood Heritage Center in Belmar Park.
Originally built in 1939, the Lakewood-Mountair Fire Station #1 was the first fire station west of Denver. The 2,900 square foot, two-story building will include Lakewood’s first fire truck, related artifacts and photographs dedicated to the history of fire service in the Lakewood area. The second floor will be an open community room and classroom space with more artifacts from Lakewood’s firefighting past. This will also provide public access to fire safety education and entry during Heritage Center tours and Lakewood’s signature Cider Days event each October.
Individuals, businesses and volunteer organizations are encouraged to donate or volunteer at www.WMFRF.org.
