Background on Fire and Life Safety Inspections:

Life safety and property protection are the main focus for Yakima Fire Departments’ Fire Code Inspection program. Through the aid of state adopted codes, we are able to perform Fire Code inspections that enforce minimum requirements consistent with providing a reasonable level of life safety and property protection from the hazards of fire, explosion or dangerous conditions, and providing safety to fire fighters and emergency responders during emergency operations. We inspect new and existing buildings, structures and premises. Through regular, fair and consistent inspections we are able to enhance the safety of the public, as well as provide a level of public education that we hope can be applied on a regular basis.


All commercial occupancies, and residential occupancies that are 3-plex or larger, are inspected within the City of Yakima limits. With cooperation from all, we can achieve our goal of fire prevention while improving life safety and property protection.
