To Whom It May Concern:

Thank you for the opportunity to comment on the updates to the Statewide Fire Prevention Code. As an advocate for the safety of the citizens of the City of Staunton and all Virginians, I would like to add my name to the comments made by the Virginia Fire Chiefs Association and the Virginia Fire Prevention Association. Moving forward without consensus is a dangerous gamble with fire safety. As outlined by others, there are too many code sections that need closer evaluation by the fire service stakeholders. Numerous sections severely diminish the regulations that are currently in place to protect the citizens of Virginia. We cannot allow for anything but a complete review and consensus document to be released and adopted.
