For some time, Downtown Los Angeles has avoided the kind of disaster: large numbers of people inside a building that has been set up to be a creative spot, but also a deadly trap. When artists band together to live and create art, life can truly be special, and the environment can be spectacular, but when safety is ignored in favor of economy and fun, then danger will reign. Art, antiques, collectibles, music, creativity, beauty and social events are valuable, but the lives of artists and their fans are priceless. Lots of artwork and decor make for a very fast spreading fire. Here are some safety tips for lofts:

  • Smoke detectors and carbon monoxide detectors are required by law.
  • Numerous fire sprinklers must be installed according to city ordinances.
  • Large groups of people must have more than one clearly marked exit.
  • Fire extinguishers should be mounted near doorways.
  • At the first sign of danger, get out immediately.

    Opportunistic and in VERY bad taste.

    • Not quite sure what Lenantik meant by his much appreciated short comment. He may be referring to the same ethical question that I had about should I be including a commercial marketing message in an article that mentions 40 lives that were lost just a few days ago. The answer is a resounding yes, because the purpose of the article is to inform and improve safety, while the commercial message pays to distribute the message. The actions and results all serve to help people who are interested in lofts.
