    Default Fire-escape information

    My fire station is in need of all things, a fire escape. The station was built in 1919 and in that time, every ounce of land on all four sides has been sold or taken over for the expansion of roads. The fire escape that we currently have leading from our second floor hall to the sidewalk below is probably not stable. It hasn't been tested in years.

    I can't find a fire escape manufacturer anywhere. I need a true, NYC-style, tenement fire escape. We can't build a set of stairs because the sidewalk abutts our building on the exit side. Does anyone have any thoughts on where we can find one or any other options we may not have thought of?

    I can't find a fire escape manufacturer anywhere. I need a true, NYC-style, taxpayer fire escape. We can't build a set of stairs because the sidewalk abutts our building on the exit side. Does anyone have any thoughts on where we can find one or any other options we may not have thought of?
    You mean a classic NYC "tenement" Fire escape. Taxpayers are usually 1 story in height.

    Call your local Ornamental Iron workers Union. They will most definately know who is the local union co that makes what you need.

    Your closest union is probably Local 28 in Richmond. (804)643-7685

    Or look up Iron work in the phone book.
