Department Profile

The Seattle Fire Department receives many more requests for extended visits than we can accommodate. On a case available basis, we will allow a stay of up to three days maximum if the visitor demonstrates the following criteria in an application letter written on his/her Department letterhead:

  1. Visitor must be a member in good standing of another emergency service organization.
  2. The visit must be approved and sponsored by the visitor's Fire Chief or highest ranking official at the home department or agency. This official must sign the application letter and provide a contact number.
  3. The visitor must have a clear educational purpose for the visit.
  4. The visit must also benefit the Seattle Fire Department educationally.
  5. The visitor must have his/her own medical insurance, must agree to adhere to all SFD rules and regulations, and must be able to support himself/herself financially during the visit (for example: money for transportation, meals, and incidentals).
