Fire Department

Message From the Chief

As Fire Chief, I am honored to work with the professional men and women of the South Jordan Fire Department and the other great employees that work for South Jordan City. As members of the Fire Department we pride ourselves in being active and involved in the community, and we work hard to provide the very best in customer service to our residents through teamwork and integrity. Our primary focus is to prevent emergencies from occurring through community education and an effective fire prevention program. However when emergencies do occur, our goal is to respond quickly and efficiently and to mitigate the situation in a professional and dedicated manner.

South Jordan City is a rapidly growing community, and as such, the demands on the employees and resources of the Fire Department are ever increasing. Our goal within the Department is to provide the very best in critical services, while also maintaining fiscal responsibility. We have a well-trained staff who provide the best in all-hazards response, which includes Paramedic-level emergency medical services, fire suppression, technical rescue response, hazardous materials response and community education. The modern fire service has evolved in to a highly professional and technical emergency service industry, in which our employees wear many hats in order to solve our customers’ problems when called upon to do so.

Currently South Jordan Fire Department has three fire stations that serve our community, with another station that is being built as part of a larger multi-use municipal building in the Daybreak area. This fourth station is scheduled to be operational by January 2021. The Fire Department is currently on track to exceed 6,000 calls for service in 2019 and calls are expected continue to increase ten percent annually as a result of the growth within our city. Expansion within the Department and the addition of more fire stations in the future will be inevitable in order to meet the increased demands for service. We are working hard to anticipate these changes and provide the most fiscally-responsible solutions for the future.

As members of your Fire Department it is our pleasure to serve South Jordan City. We take seriously the charge to provide our residents and our community the very best services available. We will continue to adapt to the ever-changing needs of the community, and will strive to maintain the trust that has been afforded us.

Thank you for taking the time to visit us here. Please don’t hesitate to reach out to us with any questions, comments, or concerns, or if we can provide you with any additional information.

Sincerely,

Chris Dawson
