On May 7, 2012, Citrus Heights City staff and residents kicked-off Building and Safety Month, a public-awareness campaign hosted by the International Code Council Foundation, to promote safe building.
Building safety and fire prevention codes address all aspects of construction, such as structural soundness of buildings, reliability of fire prevention and suppression systems, plumbing and mechanical systems, and energy efficiency and sustainability. To ensure buildings are safe requires the active participation of building safety and fire prevention officials, architects, builders, engineers, contractors and others in the construction industry, as well as property owners.
To celebrate Building Safety Month, the Citrus Heights Building Division will have an educational display throughout the month of May in the front lobby at City Hall, located at 6237 Fountain Square Drive. Each week, there will be a new theme with fun activities and raffle prizes! There will also be a raffle with prizes such as a new composter, BBQ, gift cards, and more!
