This month, Tidal Basin joins The International Code Council (ICC) in celebration of the 40th Building Safety Month. The “annual education campaign raises awareness about the importance of building codes to ensure safety in the spaces in which we live, work and learn.” For over a year, COVID-19 has forced us to spend more time indoors — making Building Safety Month particularly important.

The last week in May is dedicated to Disaster Preparedness — the ICC put together four simple steps:

  • Build to the latest codes
  • Prepare your family
  • Protect your home
  • Benchmark your community’s resilience
