Fire Station 24 was initially built in 1978 at 8600 Rosemary St. when South Adams Fire was 100% Volunteer. It housed an Engine Co, Brush Truck, and stored the Antique Engine that is now displayed at Fire Headquarters. Volunteers that lived in the area responded in their personal vehicles to the station to pick up the apparatus to respond to emergencies. The original Station 24 had no dorm rooms for overnight shifts.

Dedicated to Heath Gumm. Adams County Sheriff’s Deputy Heath Gumm who was killed in the line of duty in January 2018. On May 24, 2018 at Station 24 we honored the dedication to Deputy Gumm where members of his family, Adams County Sheriff and community were present and assisted with the traditional wash down and drying of the truck before going into service. Jim Gumm father of Heath is a retired West Metro Fire Rescue Firefighter did the honors and the first to drive the truck following the wash down.
