NCR~FIRE AWARENESS!!

ALOHA ALL MY FELLOW cca CHIPPERS,
NCR.....
MY FAMILY AND I ARE ALL SAFE!
AS U MAY HAVE SEEN ON THE NEWS, WE HAD A DEADLY CONDO FIRE IN HNL.
OUR CONDO IS JUST 2 MILES AWAY FROM THE MARCO POLO CONDO, WHERE THE FIRE WAS. AND WE ARE SURROUNDED BY OTHER CONDOS.
THE CONDO THAT THE FIRE WAS IN, IS CALLED MARCO POLO. IT WAS BUILT IN THE EARLY 70s AND DID NOT HAVE MANDATORY FIRE SPRINKLERS SYSTEMS.
THE FIRE DEPARTMENT SAID STRAIGHT OFF...."IF THIS BUILDING HAD FIRE SPRINKLERS, THE FIRE WOULD HAVE BEEN AUTOMATICALLY PUT OUT AND CONTAINED TO JUST THE ONE ROOM WHERE IT STARTED!"
ALL THE NEW CONDOS HAVE FS SYSTEMS.
I LIVE IN AN OLD CONDO AND DOES NOT HAVE FS.
I'LL BE PICKING UP SEVERAL FIRE EXTINGUISHERS FROM COSTCO.
AND CHECKING MY FIRE CEILING ALARMS.
BUT WE ALL KNOW THAT IT'S ALL ABOUT THE MONEY. IT WILL COST A LOT TO RETRO FIT FS SYSTEMS IN OLDER CONDOS.
IT SHOULD BE DONE!
I HOPE OUR MAYOR, OUR GOVERNOR AND THE POLITICIANS WILL MAKE IT MANDATORY TO HAVE FS RETRO FITTED ASAP.
I ALSO DISCUSSED WITH MY WIFE WHAT TO DO IF THERE IS A FIRE.
IT'S GOOD TO HAVE A PLAN TO ESCAPE SAFELY AND LIVE!
THIS MIGHT BE TMI FOR U ALL, BUT I WILL NOT SLEEP NAKED FROM NOW ON!
TAKE CARE AND BE SAFE,
