Two of the area’s biggest fire departments could soon become one. It’s money problems that are spurring both the Yakima and Union Gap Fire Dartments into action. Our news partner KIMA Action News says a study is now underway to see what the impact would be on you. Officials say benefits are two fold: a faster response when you call 911 and greater manpower during emergencies.

It would be paid for by your tax dollars. Fire Chiefs insist you won’t pay any more than you already now. It’s a simple concept: instead of money passing through City Hall and then going to the fire department, the dollars would go directly to the source. Union Gap expects an extra $700,000 in the bank that could be used for other things, like fixing streets. Fire Chiefs say any change would have to be approved by voters
