WW: Party Prep

Category: Egress,Wordless WednesdayLori @ 12:26 am Comments (6)

Rich McKie sent me today’s Wordless Wednesday photo of a high school lobby, which was being prepared for a “Dry Grad” overnight graduation party coordinated by a parent committee.  The plan was to host 200-300 students for the all-night party, and unfortunately the decorating plans included covering the egress doors and panic hardware with flammable opaque decorative plastic sheets and hanging black curtains around the lobby which obscured sight lines to the illuminated exit sign.  🙁

    My daughters school had one, when she graduated

    Mainly a few blocked exits, no flammable stuff

    Glad they are protecting them from booze and drugs, but not life safety

    Maybe we just need to give every parent and school administrator in the country a pamphlet called “How not to get your kids’ party shut down by the fire marshal”? Things like this might happen less often…

    Those who don’t learn from history are doomed to repeat history.
