Schomburg Plaza Fire (Paperback): Us Fire Administration, National Fire Data Center, Department of Homeland Security Schomburg Plaza Fire (Paperback)
Us Fire Administration, National Fire Data Center, Department of Homeland Security
R258 Discovery Miles 2 580 16 working days

A fire originating in the compactor chute of a 35-story high-rise apartment building in the Harlem area of New York City caused the deaths of seven building residents. Several code enforcement and fire department operational problems may have contributed to the loss. The U.S. Fire Administration had planned to investigate this fire because of its many important lessons but would only do so with the express permission of appropriate authority. The Fire Department of New York (FDNY) requested that the investigation be delayed until a preliminary internal investigation was completed. When the preliminary FDNY report was issued, the Fire Administration found it to be of such high quality and candor that an additional investigation did not seem likely to add much to the lessons of interest nationally. This report summarizes some of the lessons learned on the FDNY report and discussions with members of the investigation team.
