THE HIGH RISE DEATH TRAP
WHY A TRAGEDY IS NEEDED TO CREATE CHANGE: Whenever there is a terrible tragedy and, as a result a common sense solution is recommended, people always say, "Why does a disaster have to occur before corrections are made?" I may be the best person in this country to answer that question because my life has been devoted to proposing and sometimes creating solutions to the fire problem; and being attacked for doing so. There is an answer to that question and it is hiding in plain sight. The answer is; behind every fire code there are businesses and organizations that have helped create, promote and sell that code. Codes are mainly written by the organizations that benefit from the code. Sometimes the code increases safety. But very often the code becomes a barrier to better solutions and therefore the code contributes to the problem. The driving force behind every fire code of the NFPA is not to save Aunt Susan; it is to provide benefits to those who helped create the code.
