Richmond Fire Department

The Richmond Fire & Rescue Department is an all-volunteer group of citizens providing fire and emergency medical services to our community. They're also partnered with the Cache County Emergency Medical Services and the Cache County Fire Authority. They respond not only to emergencies within the city but can be called upon to support fire suppression elsewhere in the county and on forest service lands. Our responders are also trained to provide emergency medical support to accident victims and others.

The department has recently received a new fire engine and a newer squad truck to help in our responses to city and county emergencies. Another fire department donated the base unit for the "jaws of life" and the city has purchased the attachment for that. Our volunteers have received training on using the "jaws of life" and can now add that piece of valuable equipment to emergency response.

Chief Lyle Bair, Assistant Chief/Battalion Chief over Fire Operations and Ben Lundgreen and  Battalion Chief over Emergency Medical Operations, Coltin Larsen, lead the department. They and others organize drills and training exercises for all members. All of the volunteers undergo extensive training to be certified as either firefighters or emergency responders (and many certify in both arenas), and are required to have refresher training on an annual basis.

If you are interested in joining the department, please contact Chief Lyle Bair at 258-5538.
