2016 Annual Report

The 2016 Annual Report includes department information and response numbers. The department continually tracks these statistics and looks for ways to improve skills, training, services and response capabilities. In 2016, SFD responded to 97,042 incidents, an increase of more than 2% over 2015.

Public Records Requests

The City of Seattle is now processing public disclosure requests through a web portal called the City of Seattle Public Records Request Center (PRRC). The PRRC is designed to assist you in organizing and tracking the progress of your request(s) and downloading records. With the transition to the PRRC, the City will be charging minimal fees for copying and transmitting electronic and non-electronic records in accordance with state law.

To request a record, we now ask that you submit the request via the PRRC

Fire Department Strategic Plan

In 2012, Seattle Fire developed a Strategic Plan which serves as a guide and road map for identifying priorities in order to continue delivering excellent fire, rescue, prevention and emergency medical services into the future.  This five-year plan represents our commitment to good stewardship of the department resources funded by Seattle residents.

Fire Facilities Levy Program

In 2003, the citizens of Seattle approved funding for the Fire Facilities & Emergency Response Levy.  The main purpose of the Levy is to upgrade, renovate or replace 32 neighborhood fire stations.  For more information and the latest updates on the Levy program, visit the Fire Facilities & Emergency Response Levy Program website.
