Our Services

Fire Suppression

The White Bluff-Rye Hill Volunteer Fire Department is responsible for all fire protection in the White Bluff, Rye Hill, Shadow Lake, along with 70% of the Jenny Lind Community and will be the initial department responding to any report of fire within our 26 square mile district, covering over 1,950 structures. 
 
Our department maintains automatic and mutual aid agreements with our neighboring fire depts. in Sebastian County, including the Fort Smith Fire Department.
 
When there is a structure fire in our district, our department responds initially, followed by the next closest department.  On smaller fires we responds exclusively unless we request backup.

First Responders

WBRH Volunteer Fire Department has an organized medical responder program to assist our communnity during medical emergencies.  The personnel that are a part of this program are required to receive extensive medical training, including how to perform proper CPR, use an AED, check vital signs, administer oxygen, bandage wounds, splint broken bones, treat a shock patient, treat burn victims, and many other life-saving skills.

Search and Rescue

In the last few years WBRH Vol. Fire Department has had several members take on an additional role of becoming certified in Search and Rescue (SAR).  
 
Coordinated through the Sebastian County Sheriff's Office our SAR members are called upon to assist and help search for missing/lost person issues within our county and state.
