Our Mission Statement

We will work together to create a safer Yakima County through educational efforts, coalitions and awareness by changing unsafe behaviors and impacting high risk audiences based on community needs.

Our Vision Statement

We will work together through educational efforts to create a fire safe and injury free community.

The Fire Prevention Division is led by Captain Jim Johnston. We also have the great pleasure of being assisted by part-time employees who are crucial to the  implementation of programs.
