The Safety, Fire and Environmental Programs (SFEP), led by Sue Adams, is responsible for ensuring the Architect of the Capitol's (AOC) compliance with safety, fire and environmental laws and regulations. SFEP, comprised of the Safety and Environmental and Fire Marshal Divisions, establishes policy, conducts oversight and coordinates emergency planning and preparedness. The SFEP is the primary point of contact with external regulatory agencies for AOC's occupational safety and health, fire protection and environmental matters.
