Richland Fire & Emergency Services is passionate about serving and educating our community. Check out our safety initiatives as well as community notification and education programs.
Cell Phone Notification Applications
PulsePoint - Cell phone application that notifies and empowers CPR-trained citizens to help improve patient outcomes and save lives by reducing collapse-to-CPR and collapse-to-deﬁbrillation times.
CodeRed - Community notification application that provides notification by your local emergency response team in the event of emergency situations or critical community alerts. Examples include: evacuation notices, bio-terrorism alerts, boil water notices, and missing child reports.
RF&ES Education Programs
Heart Safe Richland - RF&ES initiative that will reduce the number of cardiac arrest related deaths within the City of Richland and greater Tri-City area.
Fired Up to Read - Partnerships with five elementary schools within the Richland School District have resulted in hours upon hours of firefighters reading with at risk kids, which the students earn on a merit based system, to encourage higher performance results in school.
Kadlec PICU Visits - Off-duty firefighters visit children in the Pediatric ICU at Kadlec Regional Medical Center on a monthly basis and hand out toys and books.
Smoke Alarm Assistance (In partnership with the American Red Cross "Sound the Alarm" campaign) - As needed, firefighters assist members of the community by replacing smoke alarm batteries and installing smoke alarms in homes that lack alarms.
