Below please find an article from today’s NY Sun.

Officials: All City Buildings Must Be Subject to Fire Code

We are glad that others are finally taking an interest in this as Where to Turn has been trying to assist the Skyscraper Safety Campaign in getting the Port Authority to build under the jurisdiction of NYC Building and Fire codes for years.

Below are a few Where to Turn postings

Letter to Governor Pataki (1/27/06)


Dear Governor Pataki,

We were pleased to hear that the Port Authority has agreed to give up its exemptions to the NYC Fire and Building codes at the World Trade Center site.
This statement was made at an LMDC Family Advisory Committee meeting on January 24, 2006 by James Kallstrom, your Senior Advisor on Counter Terrorism. 9/11 Family Group leaders in attendance reported feeling greatly encouraged by his remarks.
Would it be possible to forward to us a copy of the agreement signed by the representatives of the Port Authority stating this?
Unfortunately many promises have been made in the past to the 9/11 families concerning the rebuilding at Ground Zero and many of them have not been kept.
I am sure that many of the 9/11 families would like to see a signed agreement that the Port Authority and any businesses contracted by them will be required to build according to the NYC Fire and Building codes and that the site will be open to inspection by Fire and Building Department Inspectors with the Port Authority responsible to correct any violations found.
Thank you for your assistance in this matter as it means so much to the 9/11 families.
The copy of the agreement can be sent to me at this address or you can post it on your website and we will link to it.

Sincerely,

Dennis McKeon
