Red Creek Volunteer Fire and Rescue (RCVF&R) was founded in 1996 on the principle of "neighbors helping neighbors." RCVF&R has since operated on a volunteer basis without state, county or local tax funding.

The department serves a 107 square mile rural coverage area which encompasses more than 217 homes and an estimated population of 590. RCVF&R also provides mutual aid to many surrounding areas including Pueblo, Custer and Freemont counties.

At its inception, the department developed in a grassroots manner. Originally volunteers responded through a "phone tree system" with their personal vehicles and a few fire extinguishers, as their only equipment. In 2003, a three bay fire station was completed and equipped with older model fire trucks, all of which were donated. In this same year, radios were aquired by the department to be dispatched by 911. In 2011, RCVF&R added an additional bay onto the fire station.
