Risk Check - Inspection Program for Commercial Businesses

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 a office building. For more information about this program, or to work with Risk Check staff on scheduling your inspection, visit the Risk Check Page.
