Message from the Chief

Welcome to the Pleasant Grove Fire Department web site.

I hope you find your visit informative and educational. If you are unable to find the information you are looking for, please contact the fire station at 801-796-9496.

A little about myself, I was appointed Chief of the Pleasant Grove Fire Department on January 1, 2015 and I have been in the fire service for over three decades. I came to Pleasant Grove in 2006 after a career in a neighboring fire department. I had the privilege of serving Pleasant Grove as the Deputy Fire Chief until being appointed Fire Chief.

The Pleasant Grove Fire Department was formed in 1906 and has a long and distinguished history of service. Today, we proudly provided full time fire and paramedic level EMS services to this wonderful community based on the same attitude of service established in the early days.

If I can be of service, please stop by the fire station for a visit or give me a call at the phone number above.

Thank you!
Dave Thomas, Fire Chief
