Hianloland Fire Company: Overview
Hianloland Fire Department was established in 1940 on the grounds of the once 'Hianloland Farm' (now known as the W. Alton Jones Campus of URI) to aid in fire control.
The Hianloland Fire Department covers the Western portion of West Greenwich. The Department provides fire protection and prevention, emergency medical and emergency rescue to the town's more than 6,135 citizens (2010 Census).
Located in West Greenwich, Rhode Island, the Department boarders the Town of Exeter, Coventry and Connecticut's Town of Oneco. The Fire Department serves a diverse area, including industrial areas, residential neighborhoods, farmlands, Wickaboxet Management Area and the Arcadia State Park.
The Department provides its services free of charge. Extensive training is ongoing and remains current for both fire and rescue personnel. The Department is active in the community; holding annual Clamcake and Chowder dinners and craft fair fundraisers. In addition we provide no charge CPR training to the community, perform courtesy wood stove inspections, and sponsor Boy Scout Troop 35 and Cub Scout Pack 7.
