Emergency Preparedness

As an unincorporated community in Douglas County, Highlands Ranch receives many of its services from Douglas County government. These services include police and emergency response services through the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office and Douglas County Public Works. The Metro District is responsible for fire protection and emergency medical services and provide these services through a contract with the City of Littleton.

With respect to emergency disaster response, the Metro District’s role is one of support and providing resources as requested by the primary response agencies before, during and after major emergencies and disaster events that affect areas within the boundaries of the Metro District.

Car Seat Safety Checks

Car seat checks are free and by appointment only. Please review the car seat manual and the vehicle owner’s manual, and try to install the car seat yourself before your appointment. We allow 30 minutes per appointment, per vehicle. At the appointment, fire personnel will review your installation and your vehicle’s safety systems for children. Please call for an appointment a minimum of two weeks before you think you will need the car seat. Appointment dates and times vary; call 303-734-8305.
