The Uintah City Fire Department is responsible for the protection of lives and property within Uintah City. The Department’s services are built around our mission of anticipating and responding to the public safety needs of our diverse community.

 

The Fire Prevention Division plays a vital role in the Department’s overall mission. The Division is responsible for developing and implementing programs and policies that prevent or reduce the magnitude of emergency occurrences, such as loss of property and life, personal injury or environmental damage.  The UFD utilizes the “Three E’s” of fire prevention (Education, Engineering and Enforcement) to meet these goals.

 

Education:

Educating business owners and the public continues to be one of the most effective fire prevention strategies.  Members of the Department provide numerous educational programs and special events to a variety of audiences throughout the year.  Fire safety education is also interjected into the fire inspection program.

 

Engineering:


The Fire Marshal conducts plan reviews of proposed construction projects, building remodels, and development projects located within the City.  Field inspections are conducted to ensure that newly constructed buildings meet all applicable building and fire codes.  These measures help ensure the safety of the citizens we serve.

 

Enforcement:

Members of the Department perform on-going inspections of businesses and properties within the city.  These inspections are intended to ensure compliance with fire prevention laws, codes and ordinances and the elimination of special fire hazards and dangerous conditions.
