NAMIC Calls for Building Code Update for Shelby County, Tenn.

Statement From Erin Collins
State Affairs Manager
National Association of Mutual Insurance Companies

“We strongly urge the Shelby County Board of Commissioners in Memphis, Tenn., to adopt updates to their building codes, including immediate implementation of the portions governing seismic issues.”

“NAMIC is a national leader on building code issues as a founding member of the BuildStrong Coalition. Stronger building codes save lives, reduce property damage, and promote the longevity and prosperity of communities. Improving the durability of structures through better building standards can also, in some locations, favorably affect the affordability and availability of insurance.”
