About The Baca Grande Emergency Services

The Emergency Service department oversees the Ambulance and Fire Services for the Baca Grande PropertyOwners Association.

The Response Area of the Ambulance Service is not only the Baca Grande Sub-division but also an eastern area of Saguache County.  This area is in agreement with the Northern Saguache County Ambulance Service.   The Response Area for the Emergency Services includes the Baca Grande Subdivisions, plus the Response Area of the Crestone Volunteer Fire Department through an Automatic Mutual Aide agreement with the Northern Saguache County Fire Protection District.  This is an especially beneficial service for the Baca Grande POA as it has two fire departments responding to community fire emergencies.

Emergency Services Public Announcements 

Due to the Colorado Air Quality Control Regulation 9, burning garbage is no longer acceptable, and it states that the only items that should be burned are untreated, natural wood (sticks and branches), leaves, dry prairie grass, slash and weeds.  A permit is required for all outdoor burn permits through the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment, and the Baca Grande POA.  To report an outdoor burn that does not include the approved burn material, contact the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment at 719-587-5206
