American Fork Fire/Rescue is a combination department of over 60 members. We serve a community of 25,000 that can increase to near 75,000 during the day. We serve a six-square-mile area with the freeway, railroad, lake shore and high-occupancy facilities.
We provide fire and medical protection for the City of American Fork, and we have agreements to help neighboring cities as needed. We are staffed with 24/7/365, personnel that are fire and EMS trained.
We staff fire apparatus and three ALS ambulances with the ability to call back off-duty personnel to mitigate multiple incidents. American Fork Station 51 is the busiest station in Utah County, responding to nearly 3,000 calls a year.
