Mesa County donates vehicle to the Gateway- Unaweep Volunteer Fire Department

The Gateway- Unaweep Volunteer Fire Department (GUFD) serves a significant portion of the remote southern areas of Mesa County, including the Dolores River, Gateway, and Unaweep Canyon and is often the first responder on scene. They cover 900 square miles of diverse terrain; that is sometimes more than an hour away from Grand Junction. Mesa County is dedicated and committed to public safety and donated a 2011 Ford Expedition to the agency to help them better serve and protect our rural constituency.
