The International Code Council joined the National Fire Protection Association and the International Association of Fire Chiefs to address the issue of preventing wildfires by sponsoring a joint resolution on wildland fires through the Congressional Fire Services Institute (CFSI) National Advisory Committee (NAC). The CFSI resolution is endorsed by 38 national fire and emergency services organizations and expresses concern about the growing damage from wildfires. The resolution encourages increased support by Congress for implementing and enforcing the most current consensus-based codes and standards, implementing coordinated community risk reduction efforts, supporting further wildland fire research, and providing additional support for wildland fire suppression efforts including adequate equipment and personnel resources. The Code Council also introduced a separate CFSI resolution expressing support for using the latest codes and standards in the design and construction of federally supported infrastructure investments.
