David 4 November 9, 2019 at 10:35 am - Reply Once again the cheap answer to an expensive situation. I wonder if it’s still cheap after the lawsuits or class action Andy L.

It’s going to take some sort of tragedy in their own school to change the mind set. JOEL NIEMI November 6, 2019 at 4:46 pm - Reply Move along, nothing to see here, just some leftover extra rebar … yikes Roger Black November 6, 2019 at 6:22 pm - Reply Quick and easy way to deny egress while “securing” this exit! Daniel Lascaze November 7, 2019 at 7:21 am - Reply The only thing missing in the picture is the “Exit” sign. Columbo would want to know why all the orange scratches on the blue painted frames from the exit devices downward to the hooks on the floor. 🙂 Kevin Wiley November 7, 2019 at 10:17 am - Reply Lori, Although this picture looks pretty obvious what the rebar is used for…This is one of those cases where the Fire Marshal needs the eyes of the public to let us know of these types of situations. Chances are the rebar gets picked up in the early am by the early arriving Building Engineer and gets put back on the doors late in the pm by the evening Custodian. Either way, its not good!!! Kevin Lori Greene November 8, 2019 at 4:44 pm - Reply Thanks Kevin! I do not hesitate to alert the local fire marshal any time I see a problem. – Lori Leave A Comment Cancel replyComment Don't subscribe All Replies to my comments Notify me of followup comments via e-mail.
