Pecos Canyon News



Despite our best attempts and despite the support and help from many people, today I was officially terminated by San Miguel county.

My experience as a paid fire fighter retiring from Los Alamos Fire department five years ago, taught me what a quality department should consist of and what we needed to do to reach that level. I and the members of the department worked hard toward those goals. My focus during this time was entirely on reaching those goals. We completed many that I am very proud of. Unfortunately, we did not complete all the goals we set out to accomplish.

I would like to thank all of you who supported me and Pecos Canyon Fire & Rescue over the years, and especially over the past four years since I became its volunteer Chief.

The status and future of the department is unclear at this point. If you have questions about that, direct them to the San Miguel County manager.

I am very proud of the work we did and the accomplishments made for the benef ~Eric Roybal


San Miguel County has just released the new alert notification system for the area. Go to and sign up! Please share this with everyone you know. ~Eric Roybal


UPDATE: All three call boxes in the canyon are now in full service. We would like to thank all who assisted with this project!


UPDATE: The call box at Terrero is now fully functional.


As most of you know, there is no cell phone service north of mile marker ten in the Pecos Canyon. As a result, if there is an emergency in the canyon, visitors must drive back down the canyon to call 911. To try to minimize this, Pecos Canyon Fire & Rescue, with a generous grant from the Philip R. Jonsson Foundation is installing 3 emergency ‏call boxes in the canyon. One call box is at our station, one is at the Terrero Store and the third is at Cowles near the ponds. We have been working on this project for over a year. I am proud to say that our first call box (at our fire station) is in full service! ~Eric Roybal
