WW: Guest House Egress

Category: Egress,Wordless WednesdayLori @ 12:43 am Comments (10)

This signage designates the egress path from rooms in a small hotel / guest house in a city on the east coast.  Note the exit sign over the window inside of one of the (locked) rooms, and instructions to break out the panel in the door in order to turn the handle from the inside.  Ironically, this guest house is 3 blocks away from a very similar building where 2 firefighters were killed in a fire a few years ago.

Thank you to Keith Nelsen of Lindquist Security Technologies for allowing me to share these Wordless Wednesday photos.  Life safety is everyone’s responsibility.

    Are there copies of the pink instructions to take with me on my journey? I feel like I could get lost on my way out.

    It appears that leaving the Constitution Room during an emergency could be really bad for your constitution.

    I wonder if they print a hand out,,,

    So the guest can read directions as they follow the maze ??

    Plan B: Throw the microwave through the window and jump out after it.

  5. Ian Greene says:

    I noticed there was no reference to following a rabbit anywhere……..

  6. Angela says:

    The sign is a confusing grammatical mess.

  7. Eric Rieckers says:

    The directions sound more like a scavenger hunt.

  8. Joel Niemi says:

    I think this is unconstitutional. It is certainly unconscionable

    Sounds like a lawsuit waiting to happen.
    How can building owners and operators be so stupid?

    Did anyone spot the mirror on the egress side of the exit door???
