This event (28th Annual) is where we take 40 disabled/disadvantaged children fishing/boating at Horsetooth Reservoir. It is co-hosted by Larimer County, utilizing Larimer County volunteers as well as many boater and shore volunteers. We introduce these families to the outdoors and celebrate each child through a fun day of fishing. Boats are inspected at ANS then staged at the upper lot at South Bay. Continental breakfast is served as we await the families who check in at the South Bay Pavilion area. Kids and one guardian/parent are fitted for life vest, receive rod/reel that they can keep, along with tackle/gear. After a few hours on the water boats return and a large barbecue luncheon is served before an award ceremony where each participant receives a plaque and prizes.

Poudre Fire Authority

Status: Approved

Comments: Thank you for the opportunity to review this application as it pertains to the requirements of the adopted Fire Code. Based upon the information submitted, the Poudre Fire Authority (PFA) approves this application. PFA does not regulate personal watercraft not used commercially. However, for the safety of boaters and should the need arise, PFA makes the following recommendations for portable fire extinguishers: each boat should have (1) portable fire extinguisher at minimum. Portable fire extinguishers should be a dry chemical-type, a minimum size of 2A:10-B:C, and should have been inspected, tested, and maintained by a qualified portable fire extinguisher company within the last 12 months, with a current tag which indicates such service. Portable fire extinguishers that have been purchased from a vendor without verifying that they are in good operating condition may not be reliable. PFA does not endorse the use of consumer grade portable fire extinguishers, such as those manufactured by Kidde or similar, as these are routinely recalled by the manufacturer, and they may fail to operate properly when needed most. PFA does endorse the use of commercial grade portable fire extinguishers as these can be serviced for many years and are more reliable and cost effective for the owner. Please don’t hesitate to contact me directly if you have additional questions about how best your group can maintain their portable fire extinguishers. Please let me know if I can be a resource moving forward. Thanks, Kevin Sullivan Asst. Fire Marshal
