ATLANTA, Dec. 22, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- The BuildingReports network of nearly 1,000 fire, life safety and security service providers recently passed the seven million inspection milestone, less than one year after announcing the six million reporting milestone.

We are humbled by, and thankful for, their dedication and resolve."
