Fire Chief Derek Maxfield
The West Jordan Fire Department provides professional and efficient service to mitigate fire, medical, and other risks to life and property, while enhancing public awareness and education through inspections and prevention programs. Derek Maxfield was appointed Chief in January 2019. Chief Maxfield began his career in fire service more than 20 years ago with the Salt Lake County Fire Department. He was with the Sandy City Fire Department for 18 years where he started as a firefighter/paramedic. He then rose through the ranks to engineer, captain, fire marshal, battalion chief and, most recently, chief of operations.
West Jordan has four fire stations. All can be toured. Station tours are a valuable way of providing service to the community. Tours are scheduled on a first-come-first-served basis. Every effort will be made to meet our appointments, but emergency calls are our priority and may disrupt the tour.

How do I get more information on a fire Investigation?
The purpose of the West Jordan Fire Investigations Team is to conduct post-fire inquiries into the origin and cause of fires within our jurisdiction. If you would like more information about our fire investigations team or need to speak with someone about an open case, please call 801.260.7300.
Can I have a fire in my backyard?
An open pit cooking fire is allowed as long as it is located 25' from any building, fence, deck or anything that will burn. A source of water should be at hand to put out the fire, and the fire should not be left unattended. It is unlawful to burn leaves, tree limbs, or rubbish in your cooking pit. You are also responsible for the smoke produced by the fire. Please be considerate of your neighbors.
Can I ride along with the fire department?
While we appreciate the public interest in the work we do, we do not allow the general public to ride along. Because of issues related to limited space, patient confidentiality and potential exposure to biological hazards, riders are limited to EMT and paramedic students through prearranged programs.
