A new national coalition is trying to educate the public on the role code officials play in improving building safety.

The “Raise the Profile” coalition will be made up of building safety professionals, trade associations, manufacturers, consumers and others committed to improving public safety by raising awareness of code officials’ roles.

The coalition includes the American Association of Code Enforcement, the Institute for Business and Home Safety, the International Association of Electrical Inspectors, International Association of Fire Chiefs, the International Association of Plumbing and Mechanical Officials, the International City/County Management Association, the International Code Council and the National Electrical Manufacturers Association.
