A Message From the Fire Chief
Thank you for spending some time to visit our website. The Lehi City Fire Department has a proud history of serving our community. That spirit of service continues as we move forward into the future. The men and women of the Lehi City Fire Department are here to serve you. From our frontline Firefighters to our C.E.R.T. volunteers that comprise our workforce, we are committed to providing the highest levels of service possible.
The mission of the Lehi City Fire Department is to provide a wide range of services to the community designed to protect and preserve life, property, and the environment, through planning, prevention,
education and response. We are committed to excellence in the delivery of these services: “Proudly We Serve.”
These words summarize what we do, but it is the men and women of the Lehi City Fire Department that embrace these words on a daily basis that continue to make a difference in our community. The Lehi City Fire Department is an “All hazards” department, meaning we will respond to the needs of the community, regardless of the nature of the incident and begin the process of solving the problem to lead to a positive outcome.
The Lehi City Fire Department is comprised of specialists in the areas of structural firefighting, Hazardous Materials response, Urban Search and Rescue, Ice/Swift Water Rescue, Wildland Firefighting and strategic planning and command and control. Finally, every member of the Lehi City Fire Department is a trained Emergency Medical Technician or Nationally Accredited Paramedic. Emergency Medical Service accounts for the majority of our workload, and the Lehi City Fire Department is a national leader in pre-hospital emergency care.
As a second generation Firefighter in the City of Lehi, I am proud to represent such a fine organization. I am impressed on a daily basis with the compassion and resourcefulness of the men and women of our Department and their commitment to the residents, businesses and visitors of our City. As the Lehi City Fire Department moves into our next chapter of service we will continually seek ways to re-think how we provide our service in an effort to be more efficient, more adaptable and more responsive to the needs of our community.
It is our commitment to you that we stand ready to assist you in your time of need day or night, with compassion, professionalism, respect and dignity.
Chief Dale Ekins
