Holiday lets fire risk assessments
Fire! possibly the most fearsome shout anybody can make.
Panic, distress, fear are immediate responses. The media and silver screen portray the incident as a ‘hero’ scenario. You know the scene….
The hero enters a burning building to rescue the beautiful woman in distress. We watch him fight his way past carefully choreographed wisps of smoke and flickering flames honing in on the woman’s cries. He quickly finds her, effortlessly lifts her in his arms and turning he clearly sees the exit, soon to emerge to the relieved crowd. For his efforts, only the smear of soot on his cheek and the shimmer of sweat on his brow.
So what should we believe? Is it as bad as the reality media portrays or can we always rely on a hero to be around just when we need him?
The answer is No. The law says No. You, the property owner are responsible. So are you a hero or a villain?
