Hi Robert
I appreciate all you state, however, All people who resort to clubs or other places of public entertainment expect and believe that they are in a safe environment and that the Persons who are running or organising this venue have checked that the property and its safety issues are in fact in compliance with the fire law and should have no reason to doubt they are safe.
What happened? I have some informed judgement or what may have been wrong before and at the time.
To ask persons resorting to have a look about and view what is wrong (normally these clubs in all pats of the world are in semi darkness). should we train those persons NO, educate them YES, ensure contraventions are dealt with YES.
It is to the enforcing authorities that we should be looking to ensure they are checking the fire safety measures - and ensure compliance and that the general public are as safe as possible.
