City of Palo Alto to Participate in National Building Safety Month
The City of Palo Alto will celebrate National Building Safety Month during May with weekly themes and events throughout the month to help individuals, families and businesses understand what it takes to create safe, resilient, affordable, and energy-efficient homes and buildings.
The theme for this year's public safety awareness campaign is "Building Safety: Maximizing Resilience, Minimizing Risks," and it will highlight the importance of disaster-resistant building codes and standards that help build stronger and safer communities.
“When our building safety and fire prevention experts inspect buildings and review construction plans to ensure code compliance, they help to ensure the places where you live, learn, work, worship and play are safe,” said Director of Development Services Peter Pirnejad. “We work closely with homebuilders, contractors, plumbers, roofers and other construction industry trades to provide maximum public safety.”
