Lone Peak firefighters and Fire Chief Brad Freeman dedicated the installation of a new emergency telephone on Saturday, Nov. 7, 2015, at Tibble Fork Reservoir in American Fork Canyon. The new emergency telephone at the popular recreation spot is dedicated to Ashleigh Cox, who was killed in an avalanche in the area in February 2014. The phone is a direct connection to the Lone Peak dispatch from the Tibble Fork Canyon parking lot. Chief Brad Freeman said it will cut down response time by at least 15 minutes. The phone was installed last week and is now fully functioning.
