About Benton County Emergency Services

 
  
Benton County Emergency Services is made up of two divisions:  the Southeast Communications Center (SECOMM) and Benton County Emergency Management (BCEM).  SECOMM and BCEM work together to assist emergency responders and promote community safety.
 
SECOMM is the 9-1-1 dispatch center for Kennewick Police and Fire, Richland Police and Fire, West Richland Police, Benton County Sheriff's Office, Prosser Police and Benton County Fire Protection Districts 1, 2, 4, 5 and 6 and West Benton Fire District (Prosser).  Dispatchers at SECOMM answer all 9-1-1 calls throughout Benton County.
 
BCEM works to minimize the impact of disasters on the people, property, economy and environment of Benton County, through comprehensive disaster planning, preparedness education, training and resource coordination.  In addition to hazards such as wildfires and floods, BCEM plans and prepares for emergencies at the Hanford site and the Columbia Generating Station.
