When the fire alarm is on fire

The image “https://i1.wp.com/www.cartoonstock.com/newscartoons/cartoonists/tbr/lowres/tbrn90l.jpg” cannot be displayed, because it contains errors. The stupid story of the week goes to Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools…here’s why:

Have we not learned anything from last year’s tragic fire at Eastern Guilford? I guess not because stupidity and politics are more important than the safety of our children.

Consider this madness…some Char-Meck schools have fire alarms that are inoperable. Yes…they don’t work. Or they don’t work right. News 14 Carolina is reporting that more than a dozen Char-Meck schools are equipped with outdated fire systems, according to some administrators. The alarms are said to still work, but need to be upgraded, News 14 reports.

This is tragic.

See this excerpt from the story (and watch the video too):

At Coulwood Middle School, administrators said the fire alarm system is well past its prime. “We’re always asking crews to come out …,” said Toni Yates, assistant principal. “We think it’s about to have a problem.”

Unbelievable. The thing I can’t understand is why the affected buildings aren’t shut down by authorities ? I mean, isn’t this beyond breaking state fire codes? Am I missing something?

There’s your stupid story of the week.

E.C. 🙂
