fire investigation and fire prevention education to minimize property loss, maintain community awareness of

fire safety and to reduce the tragedy of fires in Kitsap County.

Attention Mobile Food Vendors

Beginning February 2021, mobile food vehicles that are equipped with appliances that produce smoke or grease laden vapors will require an annual Operational Permit to operate in Kitsap County.  An Operational Permit from Kitsap County will be honored in the incorporated cities within Kitsap. For more information, see the Mobile Food Prep Vehicle Brochure.  Visit the Permit Center to apply!

Temporary Outdoor Dining Tents
during COVID-19

Permit Requirements: Tents can be dangerous if they catch fire or collapse. For this reason, larger tent, canopy, air supported and membrane structures regulated by Kitsap County’s Fire and Building Codes. Additionally, heaters used in temporary structures also pose risks regardless of the fuel source or electric supply. For more information see Outdoor Dining Tents for COVID-19.

The Kitsap County Board of Commissioners passed emergency resolution 196-2020 waiving the permit fee* for temporary tents, canopies and membrane structures that have been erected to accommodate outdoor dining during the COVID-19 pandemic.

*Fee waiver will remain in effect until prohibitions against indoor dining have been lifted.
