COVID 19 Update, Fire System Confidence Testing

In accordance with Governor Jay Inslee’s amended proclamation, effective November 17, 2020 through December 14, 2020, confidence testing can continue. Rooms and spaces that are inaccessible can be inspected using digital technology. 

Incomplete tests will not be accepted as compliant confidence testing. Occupancies with testing due prior to and after the exclusion period related to COVID-19, do not receive an extension and are considered overdue and noncompliant.

Occupancies not allowing testing due to extenuating circumstances such as health or elderly facilities may apply for an exception. The building owner or legal representative can make this request by emailing the following information to

  • Building Name
  • Building Address
  • Property owner/management contact
  • Email and phone number
  • Description of challenge to testing

Please note that emergency repairs necessary to return a fire system to operational status are exempt from any quarantine related restrictions. Emergency repairs can be performed as this type of work is essential to fire life safety.

Thank you for your compliance and commitment to safety.
