Why invest in NYC fire alarm testing?
Not even two weeks ago, a woman died in a fire on Valentine’s Day in a private Brooklyn residence. The fire consumed all three stories of the building. The following day, another fire, also engulfing the entirety of a three story building was set ablaze in the nearby neighborhood of Greenpoint at the edge of Queens.
There were about 140 firefighters on scene for both of the fires. No deaths or injuries were reported following the second fire, but there was high concern due to the one from the previous day. It speaks toward a need for better New York City fire alarm testing.
There were reportedly 1.7 million calls due to fires in New York City in 2015, killing 59 people. In 2014 there were 71 people killed in New York City fires. According to Mayor de Blasio, this shows the quality and efficiency in the city’s fire department, as despite the record breaking number fires, deaths nonetheless have decreased.
He has a point, and we should all feel eternally grateful for the men and women who put their lives on the lines for our safety when we’re not equipped to do it ourselves. The low number of deaths does indeed show that New York City has the best firefighters we could possibly ask for, and we should all be proud of the fact that the death toll is so low despite there being so many fires.
But this doesn’t excuse the fact that we would prefer to be setting records in more positive ways, like, say, for the fewest number of fires in a year. Not the most. Why is this happening and what can be done to fix it? For starters, Mayor de Blasio should take up the responsibility of having tighter inspections all throughout the city. As shown from the record number of fires this year, this would most certainly prove to be a worthy expenditure by the city.
