A Message From the Interim Fire Chief
Thank you for visiting the Lehi City Fire Department’s website. The men and women of this department recognize our responsibility to help ensure the safety of the people in our City. We consider public service a privilege and value the trust we are given by the people we serve. We are dedicated to delivering our services in a courteous, expedient, and efficient manner.
The mission statement of the Lehi 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” and provides the foundation as we go about our daily responsibilities of providing 24/7 rapid response to all types of emergency and non-emergency calls for service.
For more than 100 years, our Department has worked hard to adapt and evolve to meet the challenges of providing a wide spectrum of emergency services to a diverse community. I believe our greatest asset is our team of employees who consistently go the extra mile in delivering these vital services. It’s people who carry out our mission, and the people who make up the City of Lehi and the Fire Department, all working collectively to make Lehi a safer place to live and work.
Our Department’s response area covers approximately 27 square miles and we serve a population of more than 50,000 with two stations and 12 on-duty suppression/emergency medical firefighters. As a department, we must do more than simply respond when called; we must do all we can to prevent fires and prepare in advance for emergencies. Through the Fire Marshal’s office, we accomplish this goal by reviewing new construction plans, inspections as required by codes, periodic inspection of occupancies within the City (including hazardous material occupancy inspections), and investigating fires to determine origin and cause.
The Fire Department continues to move forward and strives to utilize innovative methods to meet our operational goals and financial needs. There has been dramatic improvement over the past several years with the modernization of our fleet, equipment, and operational practices.
As the Interim Fire Chief, I have the privilege to serve a great community and work alongside some of the most talented individuals in the Fire Service. I take it as my personal responsibility to make Lehi City as safe as possible through our commitment to Fire Suppression, Emergency Medical Services, Fire Prevention, and Emergency Planning. I encourage you to browse through our web page to learn more about our department.
