Dean Severson has worked with West Metro Fire for 15 years. He works out of Station 10 at South Kipling Street and West Hampden Avenue and serves on the department’s dive team.

Area residents were given an extra day off last weekend in observance of Labor Day, the national holiday that celebrates the contributions of the American worker.

The Columbine Courier has profiled four people who work and live in South Jeffco. Each touches the lives of residents every day, whether by providing emergency aid in a time of need, a loving touch to local trees, or a permanent display of art and personality.
