  • Our audience are code and fire officials, architects, engineers, builders, contractors, inspectors, plan reviewers, permit technicians and design professionals.
  • It’s always good to offer practical how-to advice and to include time-saving solutions. We also appreciate when authors can refer the reader to more resources on your topic.
  • Please include a short paragraph biography about the author at the end of the article, along with a high-resolution headshot, if available.
  • Keep in mind that we edit all stories for clarity, grammar and organization. We follow standard AP (Associated Press) guidelines.
