Career Staff

The La Junta Fire Departments career staff are all paid employees of the City of La Junta. Together, the Rural District and City of La Junta operate under a cooperative agreement to fund all career employees allowing the community to have a responder 24/7/365. Career staff is further supplemented by community volunteers. Command Staff including the Chief, Captain, and Lieutenant all work M-F 8/5 while the Engineers work Period consists of a 24on/72off A-D Shift schedule. During their work period Engineers respond to all calls for service, conduct and attend trainings, and ensure the departments equipment and apparatus are in a constant state of readiness. Sleeping quarters for 24hr staff are housed in the City of La Junta Municipal Building.
