Buildings That Scare You?
I am sure everyone in this forum has a particular building in their town that they would abnormally dangerous during a structure fire whether it is because of construction, roof design, etc. Mine, personally would have to be our local Walmart Supercenter. I work full-time at the local Walmart and am also a volunteer firefighter. My reasons for judging Wal-mart store construction abnormally dangerous would have to do with the roof design, which all Walmart stores are constructed of open web bar joists which can fail in less than 10 minutes during a structure fire. Also the chemicals and synthetics in the store could make evacuation of customers a very serious issue (ie. fast moving fire fueled by synthetics and chemicals) Anyways, I thought I would throw this topic out there.
