Hianloland Fire Company 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 Company provides fire protection and prevention, emergency medical and emergency rescue to the town's more than 6,135 citizens (2010 Census).
