Renton Regional Fire Authority mailed tax and benefit charge notices to property owners in our response area. This notice is not a bill. Rather, it is information to taxpayers to help fulfill our promise of open and fair governance. We feel it is important for you to know your share of costs to maintain around-the-clock fire and emergency medical protection at your home or business property. The annual fire benefit charge is billed and collected through King County with your property taxes.
What is an RFA?
A Regional Fire Authority (RFA) is a special purpose district established by voters in a service area that provides funding for fire and medical emergency services. An RFA can be made up of cities, fire districts or a combination of the two.
Effective July 1, 2016, to help combat the rise in response times and as promised, your new Renton Regional Fire Authority has added a full time aid car to the Benson Hill area of South East Renton.
