Two fire stations are staffed 24 hours a day. Each station is strategically located within the cities we serve.
Lone Peak Fire District is comprised of 18 full-time employees, and a pool of 25-35 part-time firefighters depending on vacancies. Our personnel are cross trained as firefighters and paramedics/advanced EMTs. The paramedic certification is the highest level of pre-hospital emergency medicine that can be obtained. We pride ourselves in our professionalism, dedication and service to our community.
Alpine has been one of the many quickly-growing cities of Utah since the 1970s, and especially the 1990s. It is located on the slopes of the Wasatch Range north of Highland and American Fork. The west side of the city runs above the Wasatch Fault. The city is so named because when it was first settled, the Latter-day Saint prophet Brigham Young visited and said the town reminded him of the Swiss Alps.
The population was 9,555 at the 2010 census.
Highland was settled by homesteaders in the 1870s. It was named by Scottish Latter-Day Saint Pioneer Immigrants who felt the area resembled the Highlands of Scotland. According to the 2010 census the population was 15,523, a 90.0% increase over the 2000 figure of 8,172.
Our mission is to: “safely and aggressively protect life, property, and the environment. We achieve our mission by providing the highest level of emergency medical services, fire protection and rescue through team commitment, prevention, education and training.”
