Chief Dave Vroman

Dave Vroman

Married since 1978 to the same woman, father of three, grandpa to four.

I was raised on a ranch located between Cheyenne, Laramie, and Fort Collins, with property on both sides of the state line of Colorado and Wyoming. I attended community college in Cheyenne, and one year at the University of Wyoming. I went to work fulltime in the oil patch in the early 70’s... teaching was not the calling I was looking for.

I came to Eagle County in 1979; the oil patch had stopped and the work here at the time was building Interstate Seventy.

While in college I was a volunteer with Southside Volunteers in Cheyenne, and the Big Laramie Valley Volunteers. Armed with very little experience, I started with Gypsum in 1979, and assisted with the formation of the district from 1979 to 1982, also helping to build the station on Second Street from 1982-83. I was promoted to Chief in the spring of 1984, and became the first paid officer in 1990.

As a chief officer, mentoring these young men and women to be the best is my goal every day. All of these firefighters are entrusted to us – Safety is our most important function because our firefighters are the most important asset.

"This is truly the best job in the world. The Brotherhood (non-gender term, includes all of the sisters) of the fire service is the best fraternity."
