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.

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).
