    Extended Audio

    Hear LB Fire Marshal, Apt. Ass'n & Resident & Property Owner Reps As Public Safety Committee Considers Retrofitting LB High Rises With Anti-Fire Sprinklers

    (April 10, 2007) -- posts below extended audio from an April 3, 2007 hearing by the City Council's Public Safety Committee (chair, Val Lerch; vice chair Rae Gabelich; member Gerrie Schipske) on the issue of retrofitting LB high rises with anti-fire sprinklers.

    The hearing took place in the wake of the February 28, 2007 fire in the 2999 E. Ocean Blvd. Galaxy high rise...from which an 18th floor resident jumped to his death as flames bore down on him. On December 8, 2006, a major fire in the NLB Paradise Gardens three story apartment complex claimed two lives. Both buildings were built before LB fire regulations required sprinklers for such buildings.

    The extended audio (nearly an hour) speaks for itself. You'll hear a "whoosh" sound to indicate edits.
