Anonymous sources are stating that the NYC Fire department is reporting that contractors killed two of their bravest because of possible negligence. Even more disturbing is that city officials have issued violations for various reasons, including the improper storage of hazardous materials on the job site. This is another tragic example of contractors taking short cuts and ignoring safety measures to widen their profit margin. It also reveals the Department of Buildings inability to monitor and police the hundreds of construction projects happening throughout the city. No one else should have to die needlessly before the city and or the state does something to ensure that we have enough inspectors, enough resources, more stringent fines and severe punishment for contractors who violate the law.
