Dammeron Valley is an unincorporated rural community located 17 miles North of St. George,
in Southwestern Utah. Dammeron Valley Fire and Rescue is overseen by the Dammeron Valley
Fire Special Services District, an appointed Administrative Control Board. DVF&R was founded
in 1981 as a volunteer department. Equipment includes a Becker pumper, three brush trucks,
two rescue vehicles, a three-bay station house with large meeting room, kitchen, and
dormitory area. Equipment is well maintained and in average condition. The firehouse,
Station 13, is located within the community, with immediate access to SR 18. DVF&R has
automatic and mutual aid agreements in place with nearby communities, including Veyo and
Diamond Valley.

The community of Dammeron Valley sits at an elevation of 4675 ft. in the high desert between
St George and Veyo, in Southern Utah. The climate is mild, with four seasons, occasional
light snow in winter, and summer highs in the 90’s. Zion, Bryce, and Grand Canyon national
parks are all easily accessed from Dammeron Valley, as is Lake Powell, Brian Head, and many
other favorite destinations. The immediate area includes five reservoirs, hundreds of miles of
trails for horseback, mountain bike, and ATV access, hiking, rock climbing, and offers
excellent star gazing at night (Dark Skies community). The estimated population of
Dammeron Valley is 1450, with approximately 472 residences. These properties range from 1
to 15 acres in size, and a large development expansion is being planned. The topography of
the valley is broken into two components, the floor of the valley being generally designated
for horses and livestock, and the volcanic hills ringing the community that are covered, in
some areas, by Cedar and Pinion trees. Most properties located in the hills surrounding the
community are approximately 1 acre in size.
