    I have always been totally puzzled as to how the steps in this complex are wooden…does it meet fire regulations. If there is a fire and the stairs go up, people are in serious trouble..they can’t use the lift

      That’s one of many problems lol the fire alarm goes off when it rains, it’s a complete joke

      It isn’t that high, they can just jump. They pretty much have nothing to lose at this point.
