District 3 - Cedar Hill FD

58 Years of Dedicated Service to San Juan County

San Juan County Fire Department District 3 (Cedar Hill) was started by the local farmers in the community dating back to April 6, 1958, with most of the construction of the single bay brick stone station being done in 1959. All of the materials and labor were provided by the community. There were a few additions made through the years before it was repalced in 1981 with the station that resides there today.

Currently District 3 responds to over 230 emergency calls per year. District 3 covers an area of 121 square miles with nine pieces of apparatus and approximately 28 volunteer firefighers operating out of 2 stations.

Station 1 is located on US Hwy 550 south of Colorado and Station 2 is located on CR 2900 north of Aztec, NM.

District 3 serves San Juan County citizens north of Aztec, NM on the north side of the Animas River as well as north of the District 7 boundary to the Colorado State Line. District 3 has automatic aid agreements with District 7 and with Animas FD in Bondad CO for state line response. District 3 provides mutual aid support to District 2 & 8 as well.
