COVID Updates - Services During Pandemic and Re-Opening

The Fire Marshal's Office is providing all services at this time, with some modifications to align with the Governor's Safe Start plan approved for King County.  Our employees are following safe worksite guidelines and ask our customers to do so as well at their jobsites.  Please note:  our walk-in counter at 220 3rd Ave S has limited hours and we recommend contacting us by email.
