Puget Sound Regional Fire Authority

Since 1892 the Puget Sound Regional Fire Authority has existed to maintain and enhance the quality of life within its boundaries by protecting life, property, and the environment. As an internationally accredited, full-service, all-risk fire and rescue department, they provide services to citizens of Covington, Kent, SeaTac, and portions of unincorporated King County. The department covers approximately 60 square miles and protects a population of over 177,000.

Renton Regional Fire Authority

While Renton RFA was founded in 2016, the history of the department dates back to the early 1900's. With one of the highest save rates in the nation, Renton RFA's team of highly skilled firefighters are also trained emergency medical technicians - ensuring the organization always has the right personnel for any emergency. Renton RFA provides fire suppression, emergency medical service, technical rescue (water, rope, and hazmat), fire plans review, fire inspections, fire investigations, permitting, and public education to the city of Renton and Fire District 25.

Graham Fire & Recure

Graham Fire & Rescue/Pierce County Fire District 21 provides fire and emergency medical services to nearly 70,000 residents, businesses and properties. “Fire Protection Districts” (Fire Districts) are independent municipal corporations that are authorized and governed by state law (Title 52 RCW) and are accountable to voters in their district. Graham Fire & Rescue serves people throughout 70 square miles of south central Pierce County, including the communities of Frederickson, Spanaway, South Hill, Graham and Kapowsin. 97 dedicated firefighters and emergency service providers work out of the six fire stations located in the District. Early in 2020, Graham Fire & Rescue received an improved rating from the Washington State Surveying and Rating Bureau, putting the fire district in the top 10% of fire departments rated in Washington. This improved rating means low.

King County Fire District 40

King County Fire District 40 (FD40) was formed over 70 years ago providing fire and emergency services to the unincorporated Fairwood area. FD40 has seen many changes since its creation in 1949 – both in growth (as population increased) and in reductions (through annexations). Citizens of FD40 originally authorized a benefit charge in 1990 to provide a more stable method of fire department funding, re-authorizing its use every six years since then. Through fiscal responsibility, FD40 has kept its benefit charge amount the same for the past four years (at $2 million – less than 40% of their total operating budget).
