Outside Fire Escapes

The following pictures were taken by Chicago Fire Dept Lt. Joe Rimkus showing a west loop building fire escape failure.  It's important to recognize and realize that many of these fire escapes are NEVER maintained and could fail with the additional weight of a person or fire company.  DO NOT RELY ON THEM!!!!  Remember to size up buildings and do not get tunnel vision,  get back to the basics.  Situational awareness is crucial.  Do not get complacent.  As always Ground ladders, Ground ladders, Ground ladders.
