Bennett – Watkins has changed and grown substantially in the last 10 years and continues to plan
for the future. The fire District covers 325 square miles just east of the City of Aurora, protecting
portions of Unincorporated Adams and Arapahoe Counties as well as the Town of Bennett. The
area has a lot of growth planned for the next 20 years and it’s the responsibility of the staff of the
district to keep up with the growth and continue providing excellent services to the community. We
are grateful that the citizens of the district recently approved a mill levy increase to assist us with the
planned growth and to hire additional staff to improve service levels to the entire community that we
serve. The Department has a great staff that is eager to improve the district, so we can help all our
citizens that live and travel through it. The men and women of the District are highly trained
professionals who are proud to belong to the Bennett Watkins family; I am honored to work with
these great people

Bennett-Watkins Fire Rescue continues to work closely with our neighboring east I-70 fire district
partners by providing coverage and assistance. We continue to strive to protect lives and property
by providing professional and quality service to the community.

Please feel free to contact our staff with a comment or suggestion, we are here for you.

Thank you,
Fire Chief Earl Cumley
