Benton County Fire District 4 is proud to provide fire and emergency medical service (EMS) to 17,000 people over 52 square miles, including the City of West Richland. Approximately 50 volunteer and career firefighters, emergency medical technicians and paramedics respond to an average of 1,400 calls per year. We appreciate the support of our community and give back through our involvement with the local food bank, senior center, chamber, veterans groups, and public schools.
Historically, our fire district was simply there to put out fires. Over time, our responsibilities have expanded to include fire prevention, technical and water rescue, hazardous materials response, infectious diseases control, Emergency Medical Service, and eventually non-emergency care. Whatever the emergency, we want you to know we have systems and plans in place to respond quickly and effectively to save lives.
