What our department likes most about South Salt Lake:


We enjoy the feel of a small community fire department. But, in reality we have some of the largest hazards in the state (Roper Rail Yard, Interchange of I-15 & I-80, and a large industrial center). This mixture allows our firefighters to have the best of both worlds.
