Volunteer Fire Fighter Service

Volunteer Fire Fighter Service

In Duchesne County, we have seven Fire Departments serving the community, with a total of ninety five volunteer firefighters.  These volunteer firefighters dedicate thousands of hours in training and fire calls every year.  About one third are State certified structural firefighters, or certified wildland firefighters.  To achieve the status of a certified firefighter one has to put in one hundred hours of training and pass the State certification exam, which covers knowledge in the fire field and the skills necessary for fire attack.  There are two classes of certification, structural and wildland fire.  This is necessary because the two events pose very different hazards for the firefighter.  These trained firefighters are a valuable asset to the county.

Duchesne County contributes tax dollars to the operation of the City Fire departments to cover county residents.  There are four City Fire Departments and three County Departments.  Duchesne County’s Fire Marshal coordinates the efforts of these Fire Departments and helps them achieve goals.
 

To help prevent fires install a smoke alarm to give as much time as possible to get out of a burning house.  Did you know your sense of smell is the first thing to go to sleep when you do?  You will not wake up to the smell of smoke.  As a family plan for a fire so everyone knows what to do.  Teach children about playing with fire and don’t place flammable products near the stove or the gas water heater.
Open burn season is from March 30 - May 30 and again from September 15 - October 30, during which time you may burn yard clippings, etc.  Please be cautious when burning yard debris, and never leave a fire unattended.  When camping remember to put out your camp fire when you are leaving.

If you would like to volunteer your time to serve on a Fire Department, contact your local Fire Chief or one of the firefighters.
