The purpose of the internship program is to give interested individuals an opportunity to gain hands-on experience and to see what being a firefighter/paramedic entails. Additionally, interns benefit the citizens of the Lone Peak Fire District by providing added resources.
Experience in the fire service is very significant to building one's resume. Many of our hard working interns have found full-time employment with our own Lone Peak Fire District or with other departments due in large part to this program.
