Warner Robins celebrates Building Safety Month

The city of Warner Robins and the Building Inspections Office are celebrating Building Safety Month in May. The theme is “Code Officials Keep You Safe.”

Each week of May highlights an area of building safety. Remaining themes include:

• 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,” city building official Bill Mulkey said in a news release.

“Ensuring public safety is something we think about and do every day working with home builders, plumbers, roofers and other construction industry trades and contractors.”
