May is National Building Safety Month
Building Safety Month-in its 38th year-is an initiative of the International Code Council (ICC) and their 64,000 members across the world, as well as their partners in building construction and design and the safety community. Building Safety Month is an opportunity to educate insurance and commercial property professionals, as well as the general public, on what it takes to create safe, resilient, affordable, and energy efficient homes and buildings, according to the ICC website. The theme for 2018 is "Building Codes Save Lives" with a focus on safer communities over the five weeks in May. One of the topics during the third week of the month is Protecting Communities fro Disasters. The general public may not be aware how coded and code officials "improve and protect the places where we live, learn, work, worship and play, and this month can certainly improve that awareness and educate communities on this topic!
Sometimes no matter how prepared we are, a disaster may occur. Take comfort in knowing that SERVPRO of Joliet 815-436-5735 will be there to help you through it and make it "Like it never even happened."
