    Not meaning to be personal, but your board name might be a bit offensive to some here. "Rent-a-cop", even with "Professional" in front of it, well...you know. Just a suggestion.

    Back to the point of this post, your description of the facility above reminds me alot of the American Towers perhaps? I spent a week there once in a rental condo on a ski vacation. Gorgeous views of the Wasatch, but there were certainly some....umm..."interesting" folks in the vicinity. I was a little surprised, even for downtown, as no one seemed to pay them much mind. One in particular looked very much like he might have just stepped out of his "porta-lab" in the back alley...

We thought it may have been a shrapnel IED. The police linked the bag to a group of pranksters living on the property, who were subsequently charged with criminal mischief, and were investigated by the FBI. Our property is a huge threat, as we are twin towers in the center of downtown, both towers are high rises, and we have Federal Judges, assorted Hollywood personnel who do not wish to be known that they live in Salt Lake City, and other high profile members of society who live here. We also protect our local Homeland Security and ICE office, along with Federal Defenders, the U.S. Tax Court, and all Federal law enforcement offices.

    A fitting punishment would be a required visit to Israel after a suicide bombing to help clean up the aftermath. They wouldn't think it was humorous after that.

    In Boston they got tired of snow plows ripping the car counters(Rubber hoses) up.
    So they installed infra red boxes (No hoses)that the cops weren't told about. Yep you guessed it they called the bomb squad an blew one up. The sad part was that this happened after the blinking sign fiasco.

    I've been seeing this a lot more lately actually. We get a call about a backpack left somewhere, or a box in the parking lot. Once got a call for a vehicle driving by and throwing something out onto our alternate landing zone (Mcdonalds bag and they didn't even save me any fries!)

    I think because we have such a large military presence here, people are more attuned to that kinda thing.

    Israel is the only country I know of that hangs pig lard in public places. You can guess why. The Israeli citizen is, will be, or has been an Israeli soldier. No wonder they notice such things. Either in the IDF, or out of the IDF, or before they go into the IDF, that box could be an IED targeting... someone.

    Israel also has a different climate towards safety and security. I mean, the stairs could of been filled with suicide bombers, making that the only viable escape.

    Maybe in Israel but not in North America. The owner of my hotels has close ties to Israel & even property there but I don't see him installing anything like this here unless it became required by code.

    I saw Hebrew. That's Israeli. They do not screw around with this sort of thing. They'll pay, because that emergency condition could be anything from a fire to a terrorist bomber.

    Hmmm good thought. Maybe if they could incorporate it to double as the window washing gantry as all high risers in this neighbor hood have.

    started a topic Looks like it may just work

    Looks like it may just work

    Looks like it may just work in most general high rise fires. If I worked on the upper floors of a high rise you would bet that I would invest in a good base jumping parachute.
