Fortified Building Standards Resource Page
Nationwide has and will continue our efforts to raise awareness and advocate for strong, enforceable building codes at all levels of government. We call on our elected officials and policymakers to require buildings to be built to IBHS fortified building standards. We know, based on more than 20 years of scientific research, these enhanced requirements deliver superior performance protecting people and their property during severe weather events. This page contains information and resources that consumers, business owners and insurance agents can use when advocating for these enhanced building standards.
