Benton County Fire District #1


Benton #1 operates under a balanced budget, and has a long history of passing its financial and accountability audits by the State of Washington. We aggressively maintain our apparatus, facilities and equipment to extend their usable lives. We always look for ways to make local tax dollars go further by applying for grants and sharing costs with neighboring agencies. Our fire commissioners are elected by the community, and all board meetings are open to the public.
