|Building Safety Month Coming in May
Campaign reinforces the need for adoption of modern, model building codes; a strong and efficient system of code enforcement; and a well-trained, professional workforce to maintain the system.
Building Safety Month is scheduled for May with a theme of "BUILDING SAFETY: Maximizing Resilience, Minimizing Risks." Building Safety Month is a public awareness campaign supported by ICC and its members to help individuals, families and businesses understand what it takes to create and sustain safe, sustainable and resilient structures.

|Week 1 | May 6-12 | "Code Officials: Keeping Fire in its Place"|
|Week 2 | May 12-18 | "Code Officials: Helping Homeowners Weather the Storm"|
|Week 3 | May 19-25 | "Code Officials: Surround Your House with Safety"|
|Week 4 | May 26-31 | "Code Officials: Building a Brighter, More Efficient Tomorrow"|
