    Morrow considers following less-strict state standards for commercial sprinkler systems - March 14, 2015 by Mr HomeBuilder

    MORROW Morrow officials say they are considering a less-strict sprinkler system policy to encourage economic development in the area.

    Council is expected to vote on this change at a called meeting Monday at 6 p.m. in city hall.

    Our imperative directive is to try to take off some of the chains in terms of economic development if theyre not necessary, said Interim City Manager Sylvia Redic at the Jan. 27 council meeting where the issue was first discussed.

    Mayor and council looked over the first official reading of the amendment Tuesday that should repeal extra fire code restrictions the city ordinances place on businesses. Instead, the city will follow the less-strict state fire safety codes.

    Right now, Morrows codes require that buildings of any type construction or occupancy shall be protected throughout by an approved supervised sprinkler system. But fire Chief Mark Herendeen and fire Marshal Herb Jones said in at least two council meetings they felt the ordinance was overly cautious.

    When you get into commercial buildings, a lot of them are Type I, Type II concrete block and steel and theres not that need for that level of fire protection, Herendeen said at the Jan. 27 meeting.

    Herendeen and Mayor J.B. Burke implied at that meeting the change in codes could encourage smaller businesses to set up shop in Morrow since they wouldnt necessarily need to pay for the full cast-iron-pipe sprinkler system the city codes require for commercial buildings.

    If the council members vote to change the ordinances, the fire department would need to examine each building and how it would be used and determine by state codes whether it would need a sprinkler system.

    What we need to remember about the state fire code is its not a book its volumes of books, Redic said.

    Sprinkler systems have been a haunting theme of the city since controversy surrounding Olde Towne Morrow, a botched development project the city closed in February 2011.

    Sprinkler upgrades a comfort to seniors - March 14, 2015 by Mr HomeBuilder

    Residents at the citys Garden View Lodge may soon sleep a bit more soundly, following an investment of $840,000 to bring it up to fire code.

    The money, announced by Lethbridge West MLA Greg Weadick at the seniors facility on Friday morning, will be allocated for the addition of sprinklers and other system upgrades.

    This will create the safest environment possible for the residents, he said. Were so pleased and thrilled that this is going to happen in this facility. If there ever is a fire, theyll have the utmost, up-to-date equipment.

    Most supported seniors housing built before 1990 doesnt have adequate fire suppression Weadick said Garden View Lodge, which opened in 1992, is the last such building in the city that needs it, although he didnt provide an exact timeframe for when the work will be completed.

    The newer part of the complex, which is an independent seniors residence of the Green Acres Foundation, has a sprinkler system, however. Bill Martens, the foundations chairman, said his staff has been lobbying the government for quite awhile for money to upgrade the building.

    Green Acres has always taken the safety of the seniors into consideration. We really appreciate the fact that the government has decided to give this money to the Green Acres Foundation for the sprinklers at Garden View Lodge, Martens said.

    Sprinkler system bursts in vacant East Liberty building, flooding neighboring businesses - March 13, 2015 by Mr HomeBuilder

    For much of Tuesday, the basement of the William Penn Smoke Shop in East Liberty looked like a scene from disaster movie The Poseidon Adventure.

    A broken sprinkler system in a neighboring building flooded the convenience store's storage area with up to 4 feet of water.

    Cigarette cartons and crates of soda were swept up in the fast-moving tide.

    Store owner Prakash Maniyar worked feverishly to relocate inventory to higher ground but salvaged only a few packages of tortilla chips.

    In all, more than $7,000 of Maniyar's merchandise was ruined, along with business records he kept in an office in the basement.

    Once the water started rising, it came very fast, he said Wednesday.

    Officials say the flooding began in a vacant building on North Highland Avenue and spilled into the basements of at least three nearby businesses. Fire crews pumped more than 1 million gallons of water from the stores.

    The vacant building where the flooding began is owned by Nigel Parkinson, a District of Columbia -based developer, according to property records. Parkinson could not be reached Wednesday.

    Neighboring business owners said city officials told them Parkinson's building wasn't properly heated, causing its sprinkler piping system to freeze and then rupture with the thaw.

    The building where the flooding began has no history of code violations, said Erik Harless, assistant director of Pittsburgh's Department of Permits, Licenses and Inspections.

    Backpackers remains open despite fire fears - March 13, 2015 by Mr HomeBuilder

    A Hawke's Bay backpackers lodge deemed to be a lethal fire risk seven months ago remains open and is accepting guests.

    The Fire Service found a raft of problems with the Farmhouse Lodge between Napier and Hastings last year, including the fact its sprinkler system and smoke alarms did not work, its fire extinguishers had not been maintained, and the stairs on an external fire escape were in a state of disrepair.

    The Fire Service believed that death or injury would be likely in the event of a fire. Its investigation also discovered that the sprinkler system had previously failed during a fire and that past inspections had showed the alarm system was in a state of disrepair. Maintenance records were not available.

    The two-storey former pub, which is about 130 years old, belongs to Dawson Bliss, who lives in it.

    In July last year, Hastings District Council issued the lodge with two dangerous building notices and gave Bliss 10 days to fix the problems. In December, the council chose to prosecute him.

    The lodge continued to take guests, and appeared to be open when The Dominion Post visited this week. Bliss, 55, appears in court later this month and could not be reached for comment.

    The Fire Service said it was not able to close a building deemed to be such a major risk.
