Fire Prevention
Fire Prevention Statistics

City role: significant - indirect
 Fires spreading beyond room of origin; fire investigation reports where damage exceeds $10,000; and occupancies inspected for fire safety.


Fires spreading beyond room of origin. In 2015, no fire in a structure with fire sprinklers spread beyond its room of origin. By contrast, in structures without sprinklers, 3 of 21 fires spread beyond their rooms of origin in 2015.

Fire inspections. The Fire Department’s target is to initiate inspections for one third of all Redmond multifamily and commercial buildings each year. This is a new measure for achieving inspections in all such structures every three years. In 2015 the Fire Department met its target of inspecting one third of all multifamily and commercial buildings.
