Lone Peak Conservation Center (LPCC) is a state government program managed by the State of Utah, Department of Natural Resources, Division of Forestry, Fire and State Lands.

  • Twin Peaks Initial Attack Handcrew (T2IA)
  • Dromedary Peak Initial Attack Handcrew (T2IA)
  • Lone Peak Engines (Type 4)

The Center provides the following state government resources:

LPCC resources meet Utah’s statutory fire management responsibilities and assist other states and federal agencies in all wildfire suppression activities and all-hazard incidents that have a Presidential Declaration as defined by the Stafford Act. Resources listed are available for response throughout the United States.

We are ordered through the Northern Utah Interagency Fire Center (NUIFC) and operate under the terms and conditions of the Cooperative Fire Management Agreement (CFMA-see above) and associated Annual Operating Plan (AOP-see above). The AOP identifies billing procedures when Utah resources respond out of the state of Utah.

Agencies identified in the CFMA have an agreement to accept the billing rates of each other and to the billing procedures unless otherwise identified in the AOP or by a separate Financial Business Plan. Reimbursements for state employees include all entitlements governed by the Utah Department of Human Resource Management, State Travel Regulations and Division of Forestry, Fire and State Lands Policy.

At the time of dispatch, each ordered resource will provide to NUIFC, a manifest of assigned individuals, method of transportation and description of vehicles and any other equipment ordered by the incident. A resource order from NUIFC will be placed in ROSS for the state resource.

The initial order is the travel authorization including lodging and per diem as allowed under State of Utah travel rules. Travel costs are not reimbursable when provided by the fire according to the guidelines in the Interagency Incident Business Management Handbook. (IIBMH)
