***NOTICE -- EFFECTIVE IMMEDIATELY***
Effective August 18, 2011, individuals or groups holding a public or private special event with 50 or more participants will need to contact the Snohomish County Fire Marshal’s office to apply for a “special event permit”. A special event permit is not required for events with less than 50 participants. If the event is being held at a county park, the applicant will need to contact Snohomish County Parks and Recreation at 425-388-6600 to obtain approval. Please note the Fire Marshal special event permit is in addition to any other state, federal and/or local permits that may be required to operate the special event.
The Fire Marshal’s office is authorized under SCC 30.53A.800 to issue special event permits. The permit ensures conformance with fire, life and safety provisions in the county code. As a part of the special event permit, the Fire Marshal will inspect any temporary tents or structures erected on the property. In addition, public special events exceeding 100 or more participants are required to sign an indemnity agreement and provide proof of insurance. A “special event permit” is required for any private event or public event exceeding 50 people.
The revised “special event permit application form” shall be submitted to the Office of the County Fire Marshal. a minimum of 30 days prior to the event.
The revised “instructional guide” will detail all the necessary requirements of the application. Please read it very carefully. In addition, we have a new “fee” structure.
