Harris County, Texas — The Harris County Fire Marshal’s Office’s Outreach Division is being recognized for best practices in community outreach, which includes public education, public relations and communications, and youth firesetter intervention. The Harris County Fire Marshal’s Office, which is a member of the International Code Council (ICC) Major Jurisdiction Committee (MJC), submitted “Best Practices” in community outreach to the MJC. HCFMO’s best practice document was approved overwhelmingly by the committee and is now published on the ICC website.
“HCFMO is honored to be recognized by ICC and the MJC,” said Harris County Fire Marshal Laurie L. Christensen. “We strive every day to provide excellent customer service through public education and outreach. We hope our best practices document can help other jurisdictions learn from our successes and provide guidance to other officials on how to improve community outreach, without having to reinvent the wheel.”
More information about the ICC MJC process and other best practices can be out on the ICC Best Practices website.
