Benton County Fire District One levy and bond up for renewal - July 3, 2019 [NOTE: An earlier version of this story stated that it was the Finley Station to receive added living quarters, when in fact the need is at the Badger Canyon station.]

KNDU - 3/9/2018  - Three injured after rollover crash south of Kennewick 

A previous version of the news story incorrectly stated that the proposed EMS levy would fund a slip, trip, and fall prevention program. That is a prevention effort already underway at Benton/Franklin County Health Department in cooperation with local fire agencies and is unrelated to the proposed EMS levy. EMS is needed for ambulances to transport patients who have fallen to area hospitals.

KNDU TV - February 26, 2018 - Benton Co. Fire District #1 plans for levy to decrease response times
