This is the rear exit of a liquor store. Although the store was closed when this photo was taken, on the other side of the door there is an exit sign, panic hardware, a surface bolt, and a padlock. This type of retrofit is common when additional security is needed, but it is NOT code-compliant.
What can we do to help educate the public and improve life safety? I’m all ears.
Thank you to Charles Anderson for the photos!
