Building Safety Week 2009 Starts Today


Building Safety Week Starts Today!Today is the first day of Building Safety Week. This week, the Bureau of Development Services joins building departments across America to raise awareness of building safety and celebrate the theme Building Safety: Where You Live, Work and Play.

Today’s building safety and fire prevention codes address all aspects of construction from structural soundness of buildings to the reliability of fire prevention and suppression systems to plumbing and mechanical systems to energy efficiency and sustainability.

Please join us tomorrow, May 5th, here at the 1900 SW 4th Avenue Building from 3:00 – 4:30 on the first floor for a Building Safety Week Open House. We’ll have staff on hand to answer questions about projects you may be thinking about to improve your home, tours of the Development Services Center, access to building records of Portland properties which date back to 1905, and refreshments. Hope to see you there!

Check out our blog all week for helpful tips and interesting information on how building safety codes save lives and protect property and the importance of preparing your home and family for emergencies.

Alisa Cour,

Public Information Manager
