Ruidoso Downs Fire Department proudly protects 3000 people living in an area of 5 square miles. We operate out of 1 station that primarily protects a residential area located in the urban interface . Our department is a public department whose members are on a combination of paid and volunteer status. The department is structured as an independent department of the city. The department is led into action by the Assistant Fire Chief who is a career member of the department. We “mutual-aid” the Ruidoso Fire Department, Glencoe Fire Department and the Mescalero Apache Tribe Fire Department. We also assist the New Mexico State Forestry and the U.S Forest Service. The department has 25 Volunteer Professionals, 1 Full-Time paid employee, and 1 paid On-Call personnel.
Effective June 15, 2012 the Governing Body of Ruidoso Downs approved Resolution No. 2012-09 Level II Fire Restrictions. Please take a moment to review these restrictions. At this time fire danger is Class IV - VERY HIGH.
