Schertz joins International Code Council for the celebration of Building Safety Month 2023
Schertz, Texas – In May 2023, the Schertz Planning and Community Development Department is participating in the 43rd annual Building Safety Month, a worldwide campaign presented by the International Code Council, its members, and partners to promote building safety. This year’s campaign, “It starts with YOU!,” raises awareness about the importance of building codes in ensuring safety in the spaces in which we live, work, play, and learn.
Homes and buildings that are built in compliance with building safety codes and the officials who enforce the codes are essential to helping communities become affordable, resilient, and energy and water-efficient. Building Safety Month provides homeowners, government officials, and the public with the necessary information and resources to prepare and protect our built environment.
This year’s campaign themes are:
- Week 1 (May 1–7): Building Safety Starts at Home
- Week 2 (May 8–14): Building Safety Professionals and You
- Week 3 (May 15–21): Prepare Your Community
- Week 4 (May 22–28): Advocate for Your Community
- Week 5 (May 29–31): Solving Challenges Together
In honor of Building Safety Month, the Building Inspections Division will be at Lowe’s in Schertz to be a resource for the community on May 16 & 23 from 9:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m.
