Re: Building Rating Idea

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next] California has a law that businesses (refineries, of course, but also many other places, like hospitals!) have to post signs that "chemicals known to the State of California to be hazardous to your health are contained herein," or something like that.  Good idea, no?

So now there's signs everywhere, or periodic lawyer-induced notices in newspapers, telling everyone that there's dangerous stuff everywhere.  Lotta good, no?

Aren't we just crying wolf?

Refugio:

Here's the text of an Earthquake warning on many of the buildings in San
Luis Obispo, California.  You can probably revise it to fit your situation:

"Earthquake Warning:

This is an unreinforced masonry building.  You may not be safe inside or
near unreinforced masonry buildings during an earthquake."

I have a few pictures of these plaques and used one as part of a local
community college class photo assignment called "Fear".
