I believe this is a clear message! I would like this sign to become one of the normally Fire Sign used in all Buildings like the one “don’t use the lift” etc.
How many life have gone because people was trapped in a fire or other events? I would say to far to many! Today we have technique and technology that can help us in such situation, no matter how high is the building, you will be always able to safely repel down with the use of a rope.
Consider that in 15 minutes over 15 people can evacuate form a unique Ancor point… and in the same time, if you are lucky, the firefighters and emergency teams will be just arrived. Than, when you are over the fifth floor you won’t even be able to evacuate with the fireman’s ladder, … yes is too short!!… so you will have to wait until the firefighter can reach you by the inside of the building… but fire do not wait… a collapse of the building can happen any second… a dense and highly toxic smoke will be probably filling all empty spaces, burning out your oxygen reserve… etc etc …
Now consider… we are talking of a minimum of 15 minutes waiting (and this is a really positive and optimistic time estimation)… in the same time, when you have a repelling evacuation system, already 15 people would have been able to safely evacuate from each evacuation point!
Prevention and awareness are the primary survival mean in any situation… No matter who you are, how rich you are, your social rank, age, sex etc …
In caso di Incendio o emergenza Non Saltare fuori dalla finestra!!.
