Fighting wildland fires is one of the Mesa County Sheriff's Office's eight statutory functions. The Mesa County Sheriff's Wildland Fire Team comprises seasonal firefighters and Sheriff’s Office employees (deputies, too!) dedicated to saving lives and property that are affected by wildfire. 

Team members are highly trained, hard-working individuals who take satisfaction in delivering a much-needed and vital service to the community.
