ICC, NFPA Create Coalition to Advance Public Safety in the Built Environment

The International Code Council and the National Fire Protection Association Launch the Coalition for Current Safety Codes

The International Code Council and the National Fire Protection Association announced the formation of the Coalition for Current Safety Codes (CCSC). The coalition will advance public safety in the built environment by advocating states and municipal jurisdictions adopt current building, fire prevention, sustainable, electrical and life safety codes.

ICC and NFPA will seek broad participation in the coalition from other SDOs, the construction and insurance industries, government and the private sector to raise awareness about the importance of and steps needed to provide up to date buildings where people live, work, play and go to school. The two associations are coming together to co-chair the coalition because of a mutual commitment to public safety and in an effort to create even broader support for the adoption of modern codes and standards.

Please consider joining the Coalition for Current Safety Codes (CCSC) by visiting the new website: http://www.coalition4safety.org
