BOSTON, Mass. -- Health Care Without Harm applauds the Boston City Council for passing legislation that updates the city’s Fire Prevention Code to reflect today’s understanding of the safest approach to fire prevention and to reduce unnecessary and harmful exposures to flame retardants.

The organization urged Mayor Walsh to sign the bill to bring Boston’s fire code into alignment with the state of Massachusetts and the rest of the country. Such a move would allow hospitals, schools and other public buildings that have automatic sprinkler systems to purchase furniture without toxic flame retardant chemicals.
