Hi Marcus--thanks for the insight. I wasn't aware that more than 100 clubs closed their doors last week. Thanks for reading, and feel free to offer your perspective in future blog posts.

Unfortunately we have the same problem down here. We have laws, good standards in most part of the regions (there is some work to be done) and we have very good professionals too. A national fire code will surely help a lot, but the real problem is the lack of resources, knowledge and legal power for our fire marshal’s, that make it possible that only the club owners truly determine what their safety needs are. In a massive effort by our authorities (many task forces with municipal inspectors and fire marshal’s) closed more than 100 night clubs this last week.
