And Choke The Smoke"


"An Ounce Of Prevention
Is Worth A Pound Of Cure"

Awareness Blog

My blog honors Ben Franklin the man that coined the phrase, "An Ounce Of Prevention Is Worth A Pound Of Cure", which is so relevant today when it relates to making high density wood framed buildings safer from fire for workers and fire fighters.

Who would have thought that the same practical man from Philadelphia, who helped found the United States of America in 1776, would also make so many important contributions to fire prevention and safety during Colonial America?

In the spirit of Ben Franklin's pioneering work in fire prevention and safety, I have been advocating for safer and better practices in the US building industry. I have been beating the fire safety drum for over a decade now, while being involved in wood framed building on both sides, from the supply to the frame for over 40 years. Much like Ben Franklin had two carpenters on his original fire fighting team, I like to surround myself with knowledgable construction leaders who also support the cause of defending affordable housing with renewable sustainable lumber, for the benefit of future generations.
