Our community is growing, and we have a plan to respond.


Call volumes have increased 62.5% since 2010. This is reflective of the population increase in the City of West Richland and the unincorporated areas we serve. Interestingly enough, the fire district has a history of building a station every 20 years, and we’re right on track.

Our Board of Fire Commissioners have voted to place a bond issue on the August Primary Election ballot. The bond would be for 20 years or less, and cost 28-cents per $1,000 of assessed value ($7 per month for the owner of a $300,000 home).

April 5, 2018 at 6 p.m. - Station 420  

DEADLINE: April 27, 2018 5PM
