    may share some blame for the explosion in the end. A terrible price to pay...

    •  it's why the city building dept needs (0+ / 0-)

      an inspector and they need a fire marshal.

      A good fire marshal stops by the school before the year starts and checks all the extinguishers, and the sprinkler tags, and supervises an alarm test, and leads a fire drill with the staff.

      A good fire marshal stops by the big public buildings and does that.  Also checks the restaurants grease hoods  and
      visits the big apartment buildings and any businesses that may handle chemicals.

      Volunteer fire fighters can't do that job.
