User Fees – Bill for Service

The Richland Fire Department Board of Dirrectors has established a user fee for fire department responses. The money from this fee is part of the income side of the fire departments yearly operating budget. Under the bylaws of the Department, fire call response is billed to the municipality where the incident takes place. At this time all of the municipalities pass this bill to the party responsible for the incident that is responded to. The fact that you may receive a bill for the departments response should not be a determining factor in making a call for assistance if it is needed.

The current User Fee Rates are published on this website and may be viewed at
