Message From The Chief
This past year has been historic. With a worldwide pandemic, protests on the local and Federal level to the exciting opening of Station 62, Spanish Fork Citizens and the Public Safety Department have experienced many new things.
Station 62 which is located at 2635 East Canyon Road had its ribbon cutting this past September but it wasn’t without a lot of effort. We had ordered two new ambulances and because of the delays with the manufacturer, we did not receive them until 2021. We also had an ambulance get into a wreck which caused this ambulance to be totaled. This left us at times with one ambulance for the entire city. With great efforts from our EMTs and the assistance from Salem, Mapleton, and at times Springville our citizens received the needed care. Today we have a full fleet of five ambulances and have EMTs around the clock and ready to respond from Station 62. At Station 61, which is on Main Street, our EMTs are there to respond to a call from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. From 10 p.m. to 7 a.m. they respond from home/work. We are so proud of these fine EMT professionals and where we are today because of their efforts.
Another exciting thing that occurred this past year was the hiring of a full-time emergency preparedness officer, Trevor Sperry. In the short time he has been here he has held CERT trainings, been involved in COVID-19 vaccinations, and made plans with many entities for mock disasters and the Great Shake Out. He will be and is a great asset for our community.
Your police officers continue to serve you with honor and gratitude. So many people showed their support to the officers this past year. We observed across the Nation that there were many expressing their displeasure with their police officers. We on the other hand were shown compassion, love and gratitude from our citizens. This truly is the best community to live, work and raise a family.
Please get to know the goings-on in the city and your local Police Officers, Firefighters and Emergency Medical Technicians by reading through this report and visiting with us on our streets. We are here to serve you to the best of our ability. Your Public Safety Officers in each of these divisions know their duties and keep up to date on the best practices to ensure that Spanish Fork Citizens are well served.
It is without hesitation or question that I state that in order for us to do our jobs and be successful we need community involvement. We are grateful to those citizens who get involved. Please continue to do so. Get involved and make a difference.
If you have any needs or desires of your Public Safety Department please contact us.
We are here to Protect and Serve.
Chief Steven G. Adams
