Fire Safety

WIJMA has taken a proactive stance on the issue of fire safety.

A 9-minute informational video for fire fighters has been developed to address many fire issues related to modern construction.

Significant additional information on life safety risk to firefighters and occupants is needed. WIJMA is currently working with organizations such as AF&PA and CWC to address common fire performance issues across the engineered wood products industry.
