About Twin Peaks

The Twin Peaks Type 2 Initial Attack program is a wildland fire resource administered by the State of Utah Department of Natural Resources, Division of Forestry, Fire and State Lands. Based at the Lone Peak Conservation Center; Twin Peaks was established in 2004 in response to the needs for resources in the Wasatch Front area. The name “Twin Peaks” recognizes one of the many geographical landmarks eclipsing the Lone Peak Conservation Center in Draper, Utah.

The history of success for the Twin Peaks program disseminates from a pride in ethics and professionalism. This has rewarded us with various opportunities for severity details and pre-positioning in areas with historically high wildfire frequency. Quality leadership provides our personnel a necessary emphasis for maintaining crew safety, while providing successful practices for wildfire management. The Twin Peaks program consists of 4 permanent career fire technicians and 17 seasonal wildland firefighters. Our self-sufficient ability, gives us a cutting edge to support our staffing levels throughout multi-operational periods; in addition, utilization of three ‘crew carrier’ type fire transports provides the functionality in meeting the demands for either, a 21 person fire crew or individual initial attack fire modules. Our crew assigned laptops, printers and a G.P.S. mapping system; provides a distinctive ability for utilizing real time fire data, generating incident specific documentation, or printing topographic maps, which augments operations in the field. The Twin Peaks program receives dispatch orders through the Northern Utah Inter-Agency Fire Center (NUIFC) as a nationally available resource, we respond to a variety of requests involving wildland fire management and all-risk type assignments. While not assigned to these incidents, the Twin Peaks program provides fuel mitigation and land management services for both public and private lands. These services provide our crewmembers specialized training in a cohesive environment, while keeping us in a constant state of readiness for fire suppression activities.

The Twin Peaks program has integrated with the Wildland Internship Program at Utah Valley University (UVU). This will provide students whom enroll in the ESWF 1400 course an invaluable opportunity for engaged learning, while contributing to a dynamic work environment. Individual development and quality training provide our crewmembers the strong foundation that is required for success in performance-related tasks. The Twin Peaks program abides by the national training guidelines for wildland firefighters and considers these guidelines a prime importance.
