Wildland Fire Program Participation Commitment between Utah Division of Forestry, Fire and State Lands and Town of Cedar Fort

Cedar Fort has entered into an agreement with FFSL to provide wildland fire protection at no charge to the Town on condition that we meet our assessment of $6,793 each year. This is a valuable opportunity for us to have the wildfire fire protection we need and to have that protection at no charge to the citizens or town. It is not a monetary payment assessment.

This assessment can be satisfied by various means including the following 3 main areas:
  • Wildfire Prevention
  • Wildfire Mitigation (50% min)
  • Wildfire Preparedness (25% max)
See the Participation Commitment Actions and Meeting your PC Example below.
Citizens can help with wildfire mitigation doing such things as removal of fuel (wood, trees, shrubs, etc.) and other actions as shown. All participation (man-power and equipment) counts toward meeting the commitment.

Anyone that has completed a project needs to report that activity to the State website to credit the Town, thus helping us to achieve our assessment. The link below is used to track our commitment.

Any questions on the program can be directed to: Wyatt Cook, Councilman (Town Council Liaison for CF Fire Department) 801-310-4495 or
