WSAFM Announces its' ICC Preferred Provider CEU Program

The Washington State Association of Fire Marshals (WSAFM) has long been a supporter of fire prevention professionals in providing educational training credits required for certifications as well as re-certifications. With the recent changes to ICC continuing education units (CEU), WSAFM has entered into an agreement to be a Preferred Provider (PP) through ICC so that CEU credits can be issued through classes sponsored and approved by the Association. This agreement allows members of WSAFM who would like to sponsor training courses to apply for CEU to be issued by the Association.  This process involves a two tier process, with approval that may take up to 30-days.

For more details, check out the ICC Preferred Provider Documents and Forms folder in the Document Library.

Announcement Regarding Marijuana Extraction Facilities

 

The State Building Code Council (SBCC) has adopted emergency rules regarding marijuana extraction facilities. The emergency rule went into effect on July 1, 2015. 

This new rule establishes specific requirements for the handling of hazardous materials, establishes inspection standards and provides construction and permit requirements to ensure life/safety for occupants, first responders and the public. 

I encourage you to have your fire prevention officer or other applicable staff review the regulations which apply to both new and existing facilities. 

The specific regulations can be viewed by going to the SBCC website
