Brief History of American Fork Fire & Rescue

This proud organization had a modest beginning. The organizing meeting was held in the American Fork City Hall May 1, 1910. The most experienced fire firefighter among them, William Firmage, was elected Fire Chief. The group met 2 days later to name several committees. John Robinson, F.G. Wheeler and Stephen L. Anderson were named to the By-Laws Committee and directed to draft a suitable document for the new department.
