Seattle Fire Code Advisory Board Seeks New Members
The Seattle Fire Code Advisory Board is accepting applications for new members to advise the Seattle Fire Department on updates and revisions to the Seattle Fire Code. Because of the fire code's importance for residents and businesses, the Fire Code Advisory Board was created in 1957 to give the public and local business, labor, and technical trades a clear voice in the process.
For over five decades, the 15-member Seattle Fire Code Advisory Board has played a crucial role in shaping the City's Fire Code. The Fire Code helps promote the safety of those who live, work and visit Seattle. Board members provide perspective from the industries and associations they represent, to ensure that the life safety goals are achieved in a manner that works for businesses and residents in Seattle.
Current openings on the board include positions representing the following industries and groups:
- Chemical engineers
- Petroleum industry
- Retail industry
The board meets the first and third Tuesday of the month from 1-3 p.m. at Seattle Fire Department headquarters. Members serve a term of three years and are eligible for reappointment.
Persons interested and qualified to represent any of the above areas are encouraged to apply. Applicants should send a letter of interest and resume by Wednesday, June 27th. Please include information about membership and involvement in professional associations. To apply or for more information, contact Karen Grove in the Fire Marshal's Office at firstname.lastname@example.org or 206-386-1451. To submit a paper copy, please address materials to: Karen Grove, Fire Marshal's Office, City of Seattle Fire Department, 220 Third Avenue South, Seattle, WA 98104.
The City of Seattle is committed to promoting diversity in the City's boards and commissions. People with multicultural backgrounds or experience working in multicultural environments and serving diverse populations are encouraged to apply.
