Community: May is Building Safety Month

SANTA ANA, CA – To help raise awareness of building safety, the City of Santa Ana proudly celebrates “Building Safety Month” during May. Building Safety Month is a public safety awareness campaign to help individuals, families and businesses understand what it takes to create safe, resilient, affordable and energy-efficient homes and buildings. This year’s theme is: Building Codes Save Lives. Additional information available at:

Getting a building permit and a field inspection is the best way to ensure that the construction in residential or commercial is safe, while complying with all building codes. When building safety and fire prevention experts review construction plans and inspect buildings to ensure code compliance they are helping maintain life safety in the built environment in the City of Santa Ana.

To learn more about building safety, and the City’s building permit and inspection process visit City Hall’s one-stop development services center at 20 Civic Center Plaza to pick up handouts on a variety of topics, and special weekly Building Safety Month information including fire safety, disaster preparedness, backyard and pool safety, and sustainable building practices.

The City’s Planning and Building Agency also maintains a wide variety of information on the building permitting and inspection process on their website at

You can schedule an inspection for your permitted project by utilizing the City’s convenient online inspection scheduling system. Simple residential permits are also available online using OPS, the City’s online permitting system.
