PUEBLO WEST — In a statement on Monday, the Pueblo West Metropolitan District Fire Department announced that they have started a new welfare check program during the executive stay-at-home order for the COVID-19 pandemic.

“We respond to emergencies everyday in our community and during this time of the COVID-19 pandemic, we want to be proactive in helping our residents who might not otherwise have resources to help them during this stay- at-home order," said Fire Chief Brian Caserta. “Their welfare is important and we want to make sure they have what they need in this critical time.”

If you have family members or friends that you are concerned about, that live in the Pueblo West community, the fire department urges you to fill out a request form online at pueblowestmetro.com.

By filling out the form, a firefighter will perform a welfare check on a Pueblo West resident they are concerned about, who may not be able to get the help they normally would have and will do it free of charge.
