NRMCA Expanding the Concrete Industry Through Promotion, Advocacy, Education and Leadership

Build With Strength:

Map of U.S. Fires Highlights Need for Resilient Construction

As a direct result of the number of massive multifamily fires occurring throughout the U.S., NRMCA and Build with Strength have created a map detailing where these fires occur and the extent of the damage. The list only goes back to 2013, but already contains over 20 massive fires invariably caused by the light-framed combustible materials used to construct the buildings. These fires show the urgency in passing safer building codes. Light-framed, combustible construction supports the wood and homebuilding industries and their first-cost perspective; not our firefighters and building occupants. Resilient construction methods will protect those living and working in these public spaces, as well as the first responders charged with responding to fire or natural disasters.


Through the Build with Strength initiative, NRMCA has resources to help members and state affiliates advocate for resilient and safer construction, including model legislation, talking points, public relations and other key strategies.


To learn more about how NRMCA can assist in state advocacy, please contact John Loyer, vice president, state and local government affairs, at 703-675-7603 or jloyer@nrmca.org.
