Call me naive, but I always assume that when tragedy strikes, people will learn from it and try to avoid similar incidents in the future. Unfortunately, ignorance mixed with greed often stand in the way of life safety. After Oakland’s Ghost Ship fire which killed 36 people, I thought organizers might think twice about “underground” music events held in unsafe venues. Apparently not, according to ABC7-NY.
Note: Some of you may remember that I asked the fire department to visit a nightclub with some similar problems. It’s up to all of us to keep these venues safe.
