From the Chief's Office
Welcome to the Richmond Fire Department Website. I am pleased to make this site available to share information about Richmond Fire, its personnel and functions, and our mission in the community. In this space I will offer information, suggestions and safety measures that can help you increase the chance that your family will survive a fire or life-threatening emergency.
In addition, I will provide information on fire department and city programs, policies and procedures that affect our citizens and rural customers. At Richmond Fire we take the service we provide very seriously, and will carefully consider any feedback that is given through this site. So I hope that this will be another opportunity for communication between the fire department and the community. You can e-mail me directly from here at firstname.lastname@example.org
The mission of the Richmond Fire Department is to protect the lives and property of the citizens of the City of Richmond and the surrounding area. It is the goal of each member of the fire department to take the necessary steps when presented with an emergency to render the situation safe.
Protecting the community since 1899, the Richmond Fire Department uses the latest in fire suppression and emergency medical technology to protect its citizens.
The department is comprised of nine career and 16 volunteer firefighters. Career firefighters participate in fire and medical training from local, state and national training entities. Volunteer firefighters bring a wealth of knowledge and abilities form their individual fields that allow the department to professionally and efficiently deal with situations ranging from hazardous materials, medical emergencies and fires to structural collapse and hazardous rescues.
In total, the Richmond Fire Department operates three pumpers, two brush trucks, a rescue unit, a 3500 gallon tanker and an 85 foot aerial apparatus. Also the department incorporates a fire safety trailer for the delivery of fire prevention training throughout the year.
The Richmond Fire Department has the equipment and ability to execute many types of rescues, from auto extrication with the Hurst Tool to cardiac resuscitation with automatic external defibrillators. Although small in size, the Richmond Fire Department continues to have the skills and technology to serve the needs of the Richmond community.
