RH Fire Department is growing
Placeholder Image
In an effort to keep up with the growing needs of the City of Richmond Hill, the fire department has hired three additional fire fighters.
This means that Richmond Hill will be protected 24/7 by two full-time fighters, as well as 10 volunteer firefighters.
The new firefighters at RHFD are: Tim Hebert, Lee Newton and George Perez. All three new fighters bring a wealth of firefighting knowledge and experience and the Richmond Hill Fire Department is fortunate to have them.
 In September, the fire department lost one of its firefighters, Sean Curry, to Savannah Fire. In his place, Andy Burriss was hired. Andy was a Captain for Bryan County Fire, and currently serves as Deputy Director for Liberty County EMA. Andy has proven to be a valuable asset to RHFD, and the fire department will definitely benefit from his firefighting knowledge and experience, as well as his training and leadership skills.
The Richmond Hill Fire Department responds to First Responder calls, car accidents, as well as fires.
First Responder calls are calls that involve providing basic medical treatment to individuals, medical assessment to responding EMS unit, and providing assistance to EMT/paramedics, as needed. The fire department works hand-in-hand with Bryan County EMS to provide life-saving treatment to the citizens and visitors of Richmond Hill. RHFD also provides mutual aid to Bryan County fire for all structure fires in the county, as does Bryan County Fire, in the event of a structure fire in the city.
The citizens of the city of Richmond Hill, as well as the citizens of out-lying Bryan County, should rest assured that they are being provided the best fire and EMS service possible.
Richmond Hill Fire Department appreciates the support of the citizens of Richmond Hill and Bryan County.
