Virginia Statewide Fire Prevention Code
As the Chief Deputy Fire Marshal for Chesterfield Fire & EMS, I stand in oppositon to the proposed SFPC code changes in their current format. The recommended changes, proposed by Board of Housing and Community Development, will weaken the Fire Prevention Code and, in turn, reduce the safety of all Virginians and the citizens who visit our Commonwealth.
I, too, support the legislative efforts of the Virginia Fire Chief's Association (VFCA) and request to have my name added to their comments.
