Seattle Fire Department closes buildings to in-person public access in response to Governor Inslee’s Stay at Home Order

In response to Governor Jay Inslee’s Stay at Home Order, the Seattle Fire Department remains operational but has closed in-person access to the following buildings to the public: 

  • Headquarters (301 2nd Ave. S.) is closed to the public except for supply deliveries; most staff are working remotely. Members of the public can visit our website for information or call the main line (206-386-1400) with questions.  
  • The Fire Prevention Division is staying open for customers because building safety and fire mitigation are essential public services. The walk-in counter at the Fire Prevention Division (220 3rd Ave. S.) is temporarily closed, however all services and inspections can be arranged by email or phone (206-386-1450). See service adjustments and contact information here.
  • Fire Stations are closed to the public for blood pressure checks, visits and tours. Members of the public who need a blood pressure check are encouraged to visit a nearby pharmacy where the equipment is available or their doctor’s office.   

Emergency services are NOT impacted. First responders are here to provide you the help you need when you need it. For life-threatening emergencies, please dial 911.
