Richmond Fire & Rescue 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 District. 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 been awarded several grants these last few years. One was used to remodel the fire station to make a training center and better utilize meeting and storage spaces. In 2013, the department was awarded a grant to purchase a new engine.
Chief Troy Hooley leads the department. 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 Hooley at (435) 764-5454.
