Cedar Fort Fire is here to serve the people of the Cedar Fort and Fairfield. Our website is mainly to provide information about Cedar Fort Fire Department and list any fundraisers, as well as training information, applications etc.
Since it began in the 1970's, the Cedar Fort Volunteer Fire Department covers the second largest response area in Utah County, which encompasses a staggering 214 square miles. The department has six trucks total. We have a Rescue, an Engine, a Brush Truck, a Heavy Brush, a Tender, and a an Aux, and we are hoping to get an Ambulance in the near future. Out of the 214 square miles we cover, 200 miles of it is open area where there are no paved roads, they are difficult to access and where small blazes can quickly become a serious issue. It is also common for this department to be called in as an aid to battle other fires across Utah County.
The Cedar Fort Volunteer Fire Department is responsible for such difficult areas as Five Mile pass; which is a large area encompassing 46,000 acres of BLM land that is designated for off-road and open-use. This area sits on the border of Utah and Tooele County, adjacent to SR 73 and is approximately 10 miles away from the staging area of the Cedar Fort Fire Department.
Five Mile Pass is an area which most of the trails are for ATV use, which makes it a very dangerous place for people to drive. As it so happens, this area is a very popular recreation place during both holidays and summer weekends, therefore it is not uncommon to see thousands of people visiting the area on any one day.
Last but not least, the Cedar Fort Fire Department is also responsible for the town of Fairfield. We are often called to assist in motor vehicle accidents, off road accidents as well as fires.
