Toxic-tower law passes

AP/NY Post:

The City Council has voted to bar building crews from performing demolitions at the same time as asbestos abatement.

The bill addresses problems discovered after the deaths of two firefighters responding to a 2007 fire at the condemned Deutsche Bank building, which was undergoing both demolition and abatement due to damage on 9/11.

Officials later said doing both made the building a death trap.

that building was a death trap due to NO WATER supply,remember ?
secondary--no safety management.

had nothing to do with asbestos abatement,etc.

100% due to no water when they broke the stand pipe and absolutely no proper inspections,reports,corrections-- and safety management.
