Benton County Fire District 4 is proud to provide fire and emergency medical service (EMS) to 15,000 people over 53 square miles, including the City of West Richland. Approximately 36 volunteer and career firefighters, emergency medical technicians (EMTs) and six paramedics respond to an average of 1,200 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.
