Message from the Fire Marshal

Ken Carlson, Fire Marshal

The Fire Prevention Division serves the citizens of Bellevue in protecting life and property by preventing emergencies before they happen.
We do this through:

  • Education
  • Enforcement of fire, building and life safety codes
  • Investigation of fires to determine origin and cause
  • Review and inspection of new construction.

While most fires occur where we live, they can and do occur elsewhere, as well. We have a wide range of materials intended to inform you about how to prevent fires or prepare you to respond appropriately if one occurs. Our fire prevention handouts highlight fire code requirements in a user-friendly manner.

If you cannot find what you are looking for, please feel free to contact us at 425-452-6872. We are happy to assist you.
