Jennifer Anderson, one of the newest additions to the staff of the Rye Fire Protection District, keeps a large calendar prominently positioned in her home. It’s because she works fulltime for Rye Fire while her spouse works fulltime for Summit County Fire. Though it varies from one department to another, shifts for fire fighters/paramedics generally run forty-eight hours in length. With three children, the Andersons keep pretty close tabs on schedules to make sure they have their most important task, parenting, covered all the time.

Born in Denver, Colorado, Jennifer Anderson is the middle of three children. She attended and graduated from Cherry Creek High School where she played softball and was an academic standout. She was such a standout that she received a full ride academic scholarship to attend the University of Northern Colorado in Greeley. Initially, her intentions were to pursue a career in teaching but changed directions at the last minute. She moved to Steamboat Springs, Colorado, where, at age 20, she witnessed a horrific accident involving serious injuries to the occupants. “It occurred to me that I could help those people if I had the proper training,” said Anderson.
