North Metro Fire District Board select new fire chief: David Ramos, 30-year firefighting veteran

DENVER - The North Metro Fire Rescue District has a new chief. The Board of Directors decided Wednesday to promote the district's deputy chief to the position.

The board selected David Ramos, a native Coloradan with more than 30 years of firefighting experience.

The North Metro Fire Rescue District serves more than 100,000 citizens in 63 square miles north of Denver, including the City and County of Broomfield, the City of Northglenn and parts of other nearby counties. The Board of Directors stated in a press release that several letters of support from the community contributed to their decision in naming Ramos.

“As a Board, we think Chief Ramos has done a great job as Acting Fire Chief over the past few months and are confident in his ability to lead North Metro in its next chapter,” said Robert Nielsen, North Metro’s Board President and Broomfield resident. The statement was provided by the North Metro Fire Rescue District office.

Ramos has served as the fire district’s deputy chief since 2009.
