This tragedy has had a personal impact on the staff at Building Networks. The grandparents of the triplets are known to one of our staff members and our hearts go out to the whanau for the loss of these beautiful wee ones.
There will be talk and angst over coming days and months about the state of the mall’s sprinkler system, the fire alarm and locked exits. People will be on talkback and over the water cooler saying “how dreadful” and that “this would never happen in good ol’ NZ”.
Well, get real… with what some of us know about the state of fire systems and fire and smoke separations in this country – THIS TRAGEDY COULD HAPPEN HERE.
