A SMALL TOWN FIRE DEPARTMENT
MAKING A DIFFERENCE

We all know there is nothing greater than living in a small town. In a small town everyone matters; we all rely on each other. You get to know your neighbors and you get to know your Fire Department.

Founded in 1977 and a Firewise Community member since 2004, the Castle Valley Fire Department became an integral part of the town. All Volunteer, all of the time, they train year round for our health and safety and make our community a better place to be.

WHAT YOU CAN DO TO HELP

Wildland fires can devastate a community, but by creating a fire-safe boundary around your house you may avoid disaster while helping firefighters.

The Castle Valley Fire Department is asking for help in controlling the fuels that could threaten the valley in the event of a fire.

The objective is to remove enough fuel so that when a wildfire burns, it is less severe and can be more easily suppressed. When fuels accumulate, they allow fires to burn hotter, faster and with higher flame lengths.

Creating defensible space on your property. Remove dead or dying grass shrubs and trees. Reduce the desity of vegetation. Mow the cheat grass before it goes to seed. Replace hazardous vegetation with irrigated landscapes like lawn or other low-growing ground covers and flowering plants.

By reporting the time you spend creating your defensible space , the State of Utah credits the district for funds fighting future fires.download the In-Kind form below or ask for a copy at the Castle Valley Town Hall. Return completed forms to the Town Hall.
