Fire Department construction and maintenance, reviews and inspections occur within critical aquifer recharge areas established within the Redmond Municipal Code and the Redmond Zoning Code. A major component of these Fire Department reviews and inspections is the verification that storage, handling, use, and operations involving hazardous materials comply with adopted codes. In order to coordinate and minimize overlap in the enforcement of the Redmond Fire Code with wellhead protection regulations, the following shall apply:

A. Regulations imposed through the wellhead protection and critical aquifer recharge area regulations are enforceable by a Fire Code Official.

B. Where, within a particular critical aquifer recharge area, a threshold amount noted within the wellhead protection or critical aquifer recharge area regulations is less than the threshold in the Redmond Fire Code, the lower threshold shall apply and be enforceable by the Fire Code Official.

C. The Fire Code Official shall exercise authority over all hazardous materials inventory statements and hazardous material management plans for materials regulated by the Redmond Fire Code.

D. The Fire Department shall have the authority to enforce rules governing deleterious substances for such substances so identified by the City of Redmond Environmental and Utilities Services Division. Substances so identified by Environmental and Utilities Services Division shall be listed under the subcategory “other health hazards” of hazardous materials. Other health hazards may include irritants, sensitizers, pyrophoric, unstable-reactive, and radioactive materials, as identified by the Fire Code Official.
