Christine Ferretti The Detroit News Published 2:04 PM EDT Oct 15, 2018 Detroit — A group of state lawmakers are wading into the debate over a controversial new fire code policy in the city that has some runs being dispatched without lights and sirens. Democratic state Reps. LaTanya Garrett, Tenisha Yancey, Sherry Gay-Dagnogo, Leslie Love and Stephanie Chang joined with Detroit's fire union leadership Monday for a news conference on Linwood to details concerns over the new policy that the union argues is creating a "public safety nightmare." "We are standing united to speak toward safety precautions that need to be taken to ensure that all Detroit residents are safe," Gay-Dagnogo, Detroit caucus chair, told reporters, saying the delegation has been informed of the code changes "that put our residents in harm's way." "As citizens of this city, we're pushing back against that," added Gay-Dagnogo, who represents the Eighth House District. "We want to make … [Read more...] about Detroit lawmakers join call to stop fire codes
Christine Ferretti The Detroit News Published 4:54 PM EDT Oct 2, 2018 Detroit — The head of the city's fire union is calling for an administrative shakeup in the fire department and cancellation of a new policy that has some emergency runs dispatched as a lower priority without lights and sirens, warning it will have a "deadly impact." Detroit Fire Fighter Association President Mike Nevin demanded Tuesday that Fire Commissioner Eric Jones be ousted during a news conference at a house on the city's west side that was severely damaged last week by an electrical fire. A fire crew was dispatched to the scene as a lower-priority under a new policy that Jones implemented in August. "The firefighters and the EMS medics are dialing 911 right now to the public. We are dialing 911, please help us help you," Nevin told reporters. "This is a human issue. We are here to save lives. "We need some administrative changes in fire administration. No doubt Mayor (Mike) … [Read more...] about Detroit fire union calls for end to new fire code policy
Christine Ferretti The Detroit News Published 2:17 PM EDT Oct 1, 2018 Detroit — Members of City Council are questioning whether a controversial new policy that treats some city fire runs as lower priority is warranted amid concerns over its rocky implementation. Detroit Fire Commissioner Eric Jones led a presentation Monday on the policy he put in place in August that has emergency dispatchers coding runs as emergent and non-emergent, a classification that now deploys crews to some scenes without lights and sirens. Jones instituted the protocol to protect residents and firefighters, saying disregarding traffic signals and speed limits with the activation of lights and sirens for every single run — even when it's not urgent — is dangerous. But the city's fire union has criticized the move as a "public safety nightmare," saying that runs are repeatedly being dispatched improperly. "I feel like this could create more issues … [Read more...] about Detroit Council questions new fire codes amid union outcry
PUERTO PRINCESA - Inihain kahapon ng Bureau of Fire Protection (BFP) ang notice of violation laban sa Puerto Princesa International Airport. May paglabag umano ang paliparan sa Section 9 ng Republic Act 9514 o Revised Fire Code of the Philippines of 2008 na nagpapataw ng P50,000 na multa. Dismayado naman ang manager ng Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines (CAAP) dahil sa tila hindi raw tamang paraan nang paghahain ng kanilang paglabag. Nakasaad sa batas na kailangang ikabit ang poster na nagsasabing "WARNING: THIS BUILDING/STRUCTURE IS A FIRE HAZARD." PANOORIN: Bagong Puerto Princesa International Airport, bukas na Pinagbigyan naman ng BFP ang kahilingan ng CAAP na huwag na muna itong ikabit dahil baka makaapekto sa turismo. Hindi na rin nagpaunlak ng panayam ang CAAP. Mas maiging ang Department of Transportation (DOTr) na umano ang sumagot nito. Ayon naman sa BFP, kailangan lamang daw nilang sundin ang ipinag-uutos sa kanila lalo pa at lagpas isang taon na rin mula nang … [Read more...] about Puerto Princesa International Airport, fire hazard?
