Sign Up for a Ride-Along

  1. Ride-Along Requirements (please review):

    All participants must be at least 18 years old and a resident of the fire district, unless the participant is a student in a fire science or EMS program or interested in employment at North Metro Fire. Participants are limited to two ride-alongs total unless they are a student in a fire science or EMS program or seeking employment at North Metro Fire. Ride-alongs are not scheduled on holidays, and requested hours must occur between 7 a.m. and 4 p.m.

    Attestation to Health Requirement: The District highly recommends riders to be fully vaccinated (COVID-19, influenza, etc.) in order to protect the health and safety of the District’s employees and the public. All riders must fill out an attestation form prior to their ride-along that attests to their health related to COVID-19. The attestation form will be sent to you prior to your confirmed ride-along date. 

  2. Participants must be at least 18 years old.

  3. Are you fully vaccinated for COVID-19?*

  5. I am interested in working for North Metro Fire.*
  6. Is this ride-along to fulfill clinical hours or skills requirements?*

  10. Requested Date/Time

    Please select dates that are at least two weeks out from today so that we have adequate time to notify and arrange your ride-along with our crews.

Riders must wear a surgical mask on all calls, plus N95 and protective glasses on high-risk calls. Masks and glasses will be provided by the District. All participants must also wear a surgical mask when inside any hospital or healthcare facility, consistent with Colorado Department of Public Health mandates.
