These are the survivors thoughts on the Triangle Factory Fire. There was over 100 survivors but I choose two of the most important people who lived from the fire and I am sharing their thoughts.
The Triangle Factory Fire took place in New York on Saturday, March 25, 1911. The fire was marked as the worst in history of the state of New York. Men, women, and children of all ages were there but unfortunately there were more women/girls than men/boys. There were many people to not find a way out of the building but some decided to jump out of the windows for a way of escaping the fire. Majority of those who escaped by the window lost their lives. The employers had no clue of this ever happening as well as the fire department who did not have enough man power or equipment for this massive degree. Although majority of the workers died, there were some who lived to share their stories.
The Triangle Shirtwaist Factory fire of 1911 was one of the most lethal workplace tragedies in American history. 141 young women died that day, because of their unsafe work conditions. If they had fire extinguishers and a sprinkler system, or even just a better fire escape, no one would’ve had to die. The girls did not have access to these things however, because they were not required by law.
March 25, 1911 about 145 people were killed due to a tragic fire. The fire was called the Triangle Factory, it was one of the largest disaster in New York before 9/11. Before the fire there weren’t many rules that aided in the prevention of massive fires, and a lot of people died because of that. Since the fire new labor laws and fire safety laws.
What happened the day of the Triangle Fire? What progressed after it? On Saturday, March 25, 1911. At 4:25, which was 5 minutes before closing time at the Triangle Shirt Factory. The Triangle factory, owned by Max Blanck and Isaac Harris, was located on the top three floors of the Asch Building, floors 8, 9, and 10. Some cutters were smoking, even though it was prohibited. Though it is not certain, people believe that a cutter flicked a cigarette butt or hot ash, into one of the waste bins with flammable cloth in them. Many of the garment workers before the year of 1911 were unorganized, mostly because they were young immigrant
In about 1852 the Borough of Green Bay purchased a portion of a lot on the east side of South Washington Street just south of Walnut Street. That site is currently the southern end of the Backstage at the Meyer. To promote a permanent fire department, the borough built a two-story wooden engine house there and obtained a new hand pumper fire engine. A new fire company (named Alert) formed, but ceased operations within two years, as had two previous fire companies in 1841 and 1847.
The Triangle Shirtwaist Factory took place on March 25th, 1911 which led to 145 deaths. These deaths could have been prevented if the owner’s, Max Blanck and Isaac Harris would have kept up on proper maintenance within the building. There were several reasons why they should have been found guilty for manslaughter, but the courts found them to be not guilty. The reasons are as follows; doors were locked from the outside, water pressure in the hoses wasn’t sufficient and the hose nozzle was rusted shut, no sprinkler system found anywhere in the building, and only 3 of the 4 elevators were in good working order.
On august 29th at 2:30 in the morning a fire broke out by highway 190, east of Springville. The cause of the Pier fire is human caused but is still under investigation; New research shows that humans are the cause of 84% of all wildfires. As of september 18 it has burnt 36,556 acres and is at 95% containment, the estimated containment date is september 20th 12:00 am. And at 10:00am september 18th Tulare County officials lifted all evacuation orders for the Pier Fire, and Highway 190 is now open to traffic. The communities that had mandatory evacuation where Sequoia Crest, Mountain Aire, Rogers Camp, Pierpoint Springs, Cedar Slope, Camp Nelson, Doyle Springs, Alpine Village and Wishon. But the civilians coming back to their homes still have to be aware of the danger still prevalent, such as falling trees and smoke inhalation.
On the 25th of March in the year 1911 in the city of New York City, a tragic event took place. The Triangle Shirtwaist Factory caught on fire inside of the work areas. The factory was located in the eighth, ninth, and tenth floors of the Asch Building on the corner of Washington Place and Greene Street on the island of Manhattan. This workplace was a real “sweatshop”. Its main employers were young immigrant women, who rarely spoke English. They worked 12 hours a day, everyday and only made a total of about $12 a week. The rules were said to be very strict and one was that cigarettes were not allowed but many say that they were often sneaked in and that is rumored to what have started the fire in the excess rag bin. Many believe it was from a cigarette butt that had not been properly disposed of but

The fire accidents in underground tunnels are more dangerous than those above ground and have been conducted to analyse tunnel fire phenomena. Fire sources that determinesthe characteristics and type of a train tunnel fire remains inadequate. The characteristics of a passenger railcar fire based upon structures and interior materials of the railcar. The best method for determining the heat release rate for a railcar is to test the railcar itself by using the various fire scenarios. The full scale experiments are idea for collecting and analyzing the accurate data, they obtain the considerable amounts of expense and effort. .According to the location of ignition source,the fire propagation phenomena were analysed and measuring the mass loss
One of the many things that are important to the economy right now is gas. The US exports and imports gas to and from countries and sometimes diesel gas and other types of gas gets spilled. The importance of this research is to see if there is a material or materials that society hasn't used yet to clean up diesel gas spills that cleans up more gas than what they use now. The impact this study could have on society is that there could be a new way to clean up diesel gas spills.
Several National Guard and Reserve Centers operate in extremely old structures and with today’s highly technical engineering equipment running them could become hazardous. With inadequate fire protection systems to eliminate the potential of a fire hazard the potentially of a serious event occurring is possible. One of the more dangerous problems in older structures is an outdated electrical system that poses the risk of fires and/or electrocution. By means of old wiring standards and the breakdown of wire insulation, electrical hazards exist. The lack of wire insulation, incomplete circuit devices, mislabeled circuits components, current conductivity, overhead lines and proper grounding, personal protection must be closely watched for
On April 1915, The first poison gas attack began when the German forces shocked the Allied forces along the Western Front by firing more than 150 tonnes of lethal chlorine gas against two French colonial divisions at Ypres, Belgium (History.com Staff, 2010). Poison gas was the most feared of all weapons in World War One. Poison gas was used in the trenches even when there was no attack going on. If a Soldiers got trapped with poison gas, it would mean that soldiers have to put a crude gas mask (Figure 1) on because it helped protect the soldiers from inhaling airborne pollutants and toxic gases. Poison gas can leave the victim in agony for days and weeks before they succumbed to their injuries.
Just as spray booths shall be made of non-combustible material, it is very important that the tanks are non-combustible as well. Collecting tanks gather the excess material and a practitioner should know that anything that collects possible combustible or flammable material must be made of a non-combustible container. A practitioner should make sure that the collecting tank is also made of non-combustible material such as steel, concrete or masonry. (Collecting Tanks, 2009)
