Virginia Fire Prevention Code Rewrite

To whom it may concern.  I fell even though some feel enough time has been taken reviewing codes, I still feel it has been rushed too much and we need to time for all involved to review all of the codes and have a complete cencus from everyone involved.  I have the job of handling both Building and Fire Codes, but I don't see a lot of the Fire people rewriting building codes.  We all need to work together for the better cause of our citizens and not our having to be on different sides of the fence.  We are all professionals and I was at the last hearings in November and I did not feel, or viewed a fair hearing for the codes, and what was best for our enforcement and the Safety of our citizens.

Thank you,
