This photo of a door in a city hall came from another blog, A Firefighter’s Own Worst Enemy. The blog is written by Jason Hoevelmann, a Deputy Fire Chief / Fire Marshal with the Sullivan Protection District. Jason and the firefighters who frequent his site have a totally different perspective on doors than we do, but it’s really interesting to read. Firefighters need to be able to get through a door during a fire, and do it safely. Imagine a firefighter with limited visibility forcing this door open from the other side. The results could be tragic.
