FIRE ESCAPES ……………in NYC

New Yorkers LOVE their fire escapes…………and they are there by law.

In the tragic TRIANGLE SHIRTWAIST FIRE.……146 people lost their lives.

A law was passes requiring fire escapes be made of wrought iron or steel……going to every floor and if possible a “balcony” with an iron railing.  A staircase must be added that can lower down to the ground.
