Background

King County Fire Protection District 34 was formed in 1948. In the early days, the City of Redmond contracted with District 34 for fire and medical protection of its property and citizens. Today the reverse is true, with the City of Redmond providing the personnel and equipment to protect the district's area under a six-year agreement. 

The current contract began January 1, 2017 and expires December 31, 2022. The Fire Commissioners' commitment to providing quality services has been their long-standing goal. This commitment and relationship with the City of Redmond ensures this partnership continues to be one of the leading service providers in the region.
