American Fork Fire Department

The American Fork Fire Department has historically been a volunteer organization. It began with 23 concerned citizens and has grown into a modern, effective fire protection unit. After his appointment in 2009, Chief Garcia implemented many new innovative training and safety practices. Dorm rooms were completed to accommodate staffing, new Captains and Lieutenants were promoted, Wildland crews were sent out to help other cities and states; City business inspections, site plan reviews, hydrant inspections and replacements were also conducted to insure community safety.  Chief Garcia also organized many educational programs with the city elementary schools and PR events. 
In January, 2017, Aaron Brems filled the Fire Chief position at the department.  Chief Brems comes with many years of City experience and is a long time member of American Fork Fire Rescue.  He looks forward to continuing the proud traditions of Chief Garcia and the American Fork Fire Rescue Department.    

This proud organization had a modest beginning. The organizing meeting was held in the American Fork City Hall May 1, 1910. The most experienced fire firefighter among them, William Firmage, was elected Fire Chief. The group met 2 days later to name several committees. John Robinson, F.G. Wheeler and Stephen L. Anderson were named to the By-Laws Committee and directed to draft a suitable document for the new department.
