WHAT WE DO
ABOUT THE FIRE PROGRAM

Welcome to the Iron County Fire webpage. We hope you would take some time to explore some of the links and information provided here to become more familiar with Iron County Fire as well as the steps you can take to make your home and family better prepared for emergency situations.

Iron County provides a wide variety of services to the citizens and visitors through the fire program. In addition to municipal calls such as vehicle and structural fires firefighters also have advanced training in Wildland Fire Management, Hazardous Materials Response, Cold Water Rescue, Aircraft Rescue Firefighting and High Angle Rope Rescue. Firefighters are trained and certified through the Utah Fire and Rescue Academy and exceed the minimum requirements for the state of Utah.

By agreement Iron County contracts fire management services with the Utah Division of Forestry, Fire & State Lands and local community fire departments.

For more information about the fire program, including tours or public presentations, or to become involved with your community fire department, contact the Fire Warden or your local fire department.

WHAT WE DO
ABOUT THE FIRE WARDEN

By cooperative agreement between Iron County and the Utah Division of Forestry, Fire & State Lands, the primary responsibility for fire control is delegated to the Fire Warden, who is designated by the State Forester.

The Fire Warden is the official representative to the Utah Division of Forestry, Fire & State Lands as well as Iron County on all wildland fire matters within Iron County. Municipal fire authority remains with the local Fire Chief having jurisdiction in the area. The Fire Warden coordinates and cooperates with local, state and federal cooperators to deliver safe, cost effective fire suppression, fire prevention and pre-suppression projects county wide.

OUR
MISSION

The mission of Iron County Fire is to promote public safety for citizens of Iron County through public education, hazard mitigation, and emergency response. Ensure adequate training for firefighters so that each individual is able to safely and effectively respond to emergency situations. Provide coordination with local, state and federal stakeholders before, during and after emergency response to ensure positive relationships with cooperators.
