Message from the Chief
Welcome to the Yakima Fire Department, this is a small window into the life of our department and the services that we offer. I am very proud of every member of this department and their attitude toward the citizens they serve. The 78 uniformed responders answered over 10,000 calls of emergency last year to 91,000 citizens. Our dedicated staff of volunteer reserves give selflessly to their community in many ways. Our entire staff of 85 knows who pays their mortgages, and feeds their families. We are truly blessed to serve our citizens in the capacity that we serve. If you need more information than you can find on this site, please call 509.575.6060 to talk to a person (not a phone tree) during business hours.
