Building safety noted in Langley
To help raise awareness of building safety, the city of Langley Building Department celebrates Building Safety Month during May. Last year, President Barack Obama declared Building Safety Month nationally and local entities signed on.
Bob Snyder, Langley’s building official, said, “This year’s theme is Building Safety Month: Code Officials Keep You Safe.”
Each week of Building Safety Month spotlights a specific area of building safety: Fire Safety and Awareness, May 6-12; Disaster Safety and Mitigation, May 13-19; Backyard and Pool Safety, May 20-26; and Energy and Green Building, May 27-31.
“When our building safety and fire prevention experts inspect buildings during and after construction, they help to ensure that the places where you live, learn, work, worship and play are safe,” Snyder said.
