MEMORANDUM

Posted: March 2, 2015 12:15 PM
From: Representative Harry Readshaw
To: All House members
Subject: Co-sponsor: Lightweight construction warning signs
 

In the near future, I plan to re-introduce House Bill 2293 (2013/14) that would serve to protect firefighters and first responders. It would do so by requiring commercial, industrial, and multi-unit residential structures using light-frame truss-type construction to mark the buildings with approved emblems/signs/placards.

Light-frame truss-type construction is a type of building technique (and material) that uses primary structural elements formed by repetitive wood or light gauge steel framing members; these systems are used in roofs or floors, and sometimes both. While this type of construction is an affordable and safe structural system, it is prone to early collapse during a fire.

Firefighters face enough challenges when combating structure fires; let’s give them an advantage that could save lives.


If you have any questions, or need any additional information, please contact Margaret Tricarico at 717-772-5568, Democratic Extension 6168 or mtricarico@pahouse.net.

Thank you!
