INTERNATIONAL CODE COUNCIL - The International Code Council is a member-focused association dedicated to helping the building safety community and construction industry provide safe, sustainable and affordable construction through the development of codes and standards used in the design, build and compliance process. Most U.S. communities and many global markets choose the International Codes.


This year we have adopted the Wildland Urban Interface (WUI) Code which contains provisions for addressing fire spread, accessibility, defensible space, water supply and more for buildings constructed near wildland areas. We have identified the WUI Zones in Orange Beach and will be attempting to educate all of those affected about the benefits of compliance with this code. In recent years we have experienced larger, hotter and more dangerous wildland fires. As development continues into and around these large tracts undeveloped land we want to insure we have every tool at our disposal to prevent loss of life and property during one of these events. If you or your owners association is interested in learning more about what you can do to comply with this code and maintain a safer space around your property please give Lt. Stephenson or Battalion Chief Wade Stevens a call to arrange a meeting with you or your group.
