Chicago's City Council panel OKs signs warning cops, firefighters of unsafe buildings


Firefighters, cops and paramedics arriving at dangerous, vacant buildings would be warned by emergency dispatchers and bright reflective signs under new city efforts to avoid another disaster like the December 2010 roof collapse that claimed the lives of two firefighters.

Earlier this year, the city began compiling a list of dangerous buildings for 911 dispatchers, who will warn first responders en route to those sites. And the City Council Zoning Committee on Monday endorsed a measure to put 2-foot by 2-foot reflective signs, each with a large red “X,” on those buildings.

Firefighters Edward Stringer and Corey Ankum were killed Dec. 22, 2010 when a roof collapsed. Seventeen other firefighters were injured. They were searching an abandoned laundry during a fire on the 1700 block of East 75th Street.

Anyone try to report something legitimate to the democommunist City of Crookago and actually follow up on if it was done ? It NEVER is. The City [DEMOCRAT - RUN] can't even handle the simplist of requests for City Services. These Idiots are COMPLETELY Incompetent. What will happen when soon, a Major, Serious Event happens in the City ? We will be on our own, as the incompetents, who can't even handle the smallest and simplist of tasks, fumble and bumble, then abandon ship on the Middle-Class Taxpayers. Really people, they can't do ANYTHING correctly. Just try to get something done by the City if you don't believe it. Even their Internet Request for Service Request Links don't work correctly, and even if it does, there's NO follow-up to your request. The City is basically a big 19-Paul whenever a Middle Class Taxpayer requests City Services, and blows all this stuff off completely.

From a firefighters perspective, ALL buildings are unsafe! All calls are dangerous. WTF does the City Council know about what Police & F.F.'s and Medics do everyday? Stick the signs in your ass and give us a paid for pension and a better contract... The City Council wants us to be safe yet they do not hire more Police or Fire and they threaten to take members off of the rigs... FUCK YOU, Rahm & your Bullshit City Council Panel of assholes.

Obama voters need warning signs for everything. Next they will have to learn how to read.
