Building Safety Month depends on the efforts of individuals like you. Consider these tips to Promote Building Safety Month in your community today.

Send a news release to newspapers, radio, and television stations. Encourage local media to cover Building Safety Month activities and send public service announcements to local radio and television stations. Public information officers, city managers, or mayors could also arrange to appear on a talk/community information show through your local television or radio stations. Include a call-in, question-and-answer session as part of the program to generate even more interest. Be sure to also invite your local media to any scheduled events you plan during the month and post on your social media websites.
