Building Safety Month

Building-Safety-Month

In May 2018, the Planning and Community Development department is participating in the 38th annual Building Safety Month to promote building safety. Building Safety Month raises awareness about critical safety issues from structural to fire prevention, plumbing and mechanical systems, and energy efficiency.

Building codes and the officials who enforce them are making our community safer and more resilient. Homes and buildings that are built in compliance with building safety codes result in resilient structures that minimize the risks of death, injury and property damage. Building safety affects everyone, and modern, updated building codes save lives. The International Building Codes adopted by our community, are the most widely used and adopted set of building safety codes in the U.S. and around the world.


This year’s themes are:

May 1–5, Partnering with Code Officials to Build Stronger, Safer  Communities;

May 6–12, Advancing Resilient Communities through Science and Technology;

May 13–19, Protecting Communities from Disasters;

May 20–26, Safeguarding Our Water; and

May 27–31, Improving Education and Training Standards for a Safer Tomorrow.
