Public Safety

Brian Head Public Safety’s goal is to provide our residents and guests with quality public safety services which protect life and property, inspire confidence, community safety, security, and well being, while maintaining community values.

The Public Safety Department is made up of the Police, Fire and EMS.  All of Brian Head’s officers are trained and certified as Police Officer’s, Fire Fighter’s and EMT’s.  This department is directed by the Public Safety Director with four officers who help and protect Brian Head.

The Town pond is a great thing for all who visit Brian Head. We hope that you will enjoy fishing and all the activities the pond has to offer. Just remember motorized vehicles are not allowed on or around the pond.

Brian Head Town currently has 4 Public Safety Officers who are certified in Dive Rescue. Please be very careful on or around the pond, so we never have to use this training.

Annual Brian Head Town Chipping Project

Brian Head Town in conjunction with Utah Division of Forestry, Fire and State Lands has for the past several years done chipping projects in Brian Head Town. This project will begin in mid-summer and run through September each year.  The Dates will be announced on the Home Page of this website.

These projects are a huge benefit to our community in reducing fuel loading that has built up on our private properties for decades. Property owners can participate in this project but must follow the guidelines below when creating piles that will be chipped by our crews.
