Huntsville Town is a member of the Weber Fire District.  Weber Fire District was created as a special service area in 1982 by the Weber County Commissioners. Prior to it’s creation the department was known as the Weber County Fire Department.  The District provides emergency fire and medical services to all of the unincorporated areas of Weber County, and the incorporated cities of Farr West, Hooper, Huntsville, Marriott-Slaterville and West Haven.  The District covers a geographical area of approximately 511 square miles of land area with a population of 26,000.

SMOKE DETECTORS
The primary goal of the Weber Fire District is to save lives . We are convinced that smoke detectors are the single most important appliance in the home.  Having at least one properly placed, regularly tested and maintained smoke detector on each level of the home cuts the chance of dying in half if there is a fire in your home.  Smoke detectors are reliable for ten years and then they should be replaced.

SMALL FIRES
If you experience a small fire in your home, call the Fire Department and have them respond, even if the fire has already been distinguished . Insurance companies may not pay for damage caused by a fire if a report has not been filed with the Fire Department.

HOUSE NUMBERS
Make sure that your house number is clearly visible on the front of your home.  During the winter months, when snow covers the roadways, it is difficult to see mailboxes or yard address markers.  A number on the front of the house, where it is easily seen, could provide a quicker emergency response time.

OPEN BURNING
Each year, Weber County residents are allowed a brief time to burn yard and garden waste and irrigation ditches.
