Risk Check is Kitsap County's Commercial Occupancy Fire & Life Safety Inspection Program. This program replaces the annual inspections that were previously conducted by the local Fire Departments and uses a risk assessment to prioritize the frequency of inspections based on the known risk of each business. Businesses with a higher fire and life safety risk are scheduled to be inspected more frequently, example: a hospital would be inspected more often than an office building. For more information about this program, or to work with Risk Check staff on scheduling your inspection, visit the Risk Check Page.
