Statewide Fire Prevention Code Concerns

Thank you for the opportunity to comment on the updates to the Statewide Fire Prevention Code. My name is Jay Davis and I am the Fire Marshal for the Charlottesville Fire Department. As an advocate for the safety of all Virginians, I would like to add my name to the comments made by the Virginia Fire Chiefs Association. 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 need a complete review and consensus document to be released and adopted.
