london 24 story tower on fire

6 posts in this topic

Went and checked for new information and WALA NOTHING !  I guess the baking to death of numerous London citizens is not that important but they seem to be blaming the Cladding of aluminum really from what I saw the flames were blowing out like a torch eventually once the fire got hot enough the cladding would have gone up but then it appeared from the video that it started from the ground floor or parking garage and they are saying it was an appliance explosion ? Why did the sprinklers not go off or the alarm and why did the building issue a shelter in place during a fire advisory ? 

The building was built in 74 so it may not have been retrofitted with certain fire suppression equipment but stupid statements like "they did not know why the fire moved so quickly"  IT'S called air without it a fire smolders until it can get some cladding is siding and unless a lightning strike or a dead short to the metal siding of appreciable amperage with out throwing a breaker or blowing a transformer that seems rather OUT THERE the heating would be a good guess as it has ventilation sufficient to create a wind tunnel effect to move so fast and encompass most of the buildings in the report I read it was a communal heating system of course that could be steam but the duct composition could have had more of an effect than the cladding IMO the windows were double glazed so the fire brigade should have been able to arrest an external fire and it would probably been more on one side than what I saw from photos and that the 3 sides I could see were well toasted from bottom to top there was a 12 + million renovation and it seems like they are looking to blame them and that all depends on what portion of work they took responsibility for new paint on a beater car does not make you responsible for it catching fire and if it did catch fire of course the paint would burn off .... the doors were rated at 30 minutes so from video the fire was inside the residences early looks like duct involved and could have been a faulty blower motor and they did not state gas or what fuel / energy source for the heating or for that matter stove or oven use ----- cladding that sounds like B.S. to me.

This is a good time to explain to people that live in multi story housing to have a personal escape means it does take some forethought chain for the ledge and like this fire if windows are one on another quick action is imperative.  

I had a spiel already but it is best to accomplish this but some time on a climbing .wall should get the experience you need for basic repelling and climbing

David Ick wades in on the Grenfell tower fire listen close he states that this cladding has been placed on a number of buildings in that area.

the people that survived are being told they can have accommodations far away from where they live now and if they do not accept the offer they will be homeless !!! so to be sent away from friends family and the area they have lived all their lives then he talks about agenda 21 and other agendas that are pushing to overthrow national sovereignty and national elections.

    • sounds like your wearing a 1970s leisure suit, good mention though
    • already do all that my traps are right now live traps damn coons and squirrels are my trouble but since they taste good no problem to big with more taters and gravy. anyone that is not up on self defense or "gun" handling is way behind the 8 ball. it's not that training is not important but there comes a point where your gilding the Lilly and dry firing is the cause of more firearms damage than every other use of a firearm unless one uses a snap cap and if you already know how when and what to shoot it's not time well spent.  Prepping the art of being prepared I am already there all I do ow is back fill and reorder until the flag goes up.  I'm sure I will want some new toy but to be truthful if people can keep their head down 90 days there will be very little to deal with as all the unprepared will have dealt each other out of the game. Cabin fever and doing ninja rolls in the urban jungle scoping out all the stuff you should already have only places you in the cross-hairs of a opportunistic sniper who's spotter will clean you like a chicken for Sunday dinner.  water holes are always a bad place to go to as everyone else will be needing /wanting water. depending on the situation rivers streams and wells may be polluted by the dead since animals will be left to their own roving packs of dogs will add to the otherwise difficult task of roaming around. many a good man has walked up on a spider hole handful of punji sticks leg traps fall traps etc etc etc. its great to be an armchair commando the field test is a bit trickier. I can also see where like many countries in the recent unpleasantness released their zoo critters I know of people that keep large dangerous exotic pets. roaming through homes and commercial centers may lead to some real surprises people are funny that way if they want to punish people that try to steal their sh*t  it may have strings attached ! I already know how to field strip or dress most anything I will encounter that I need or can use if it takes a large vehicle to move better to decommission and move on. piles of goods probably have love apples hidden and some have NO DELAY click bang in a real nasty world there are thousands of ways to meet your end and curiosity kills more than cats. most fields can hold hundreds of people ask any Masai warrior .  Mountains or hills can hold an avalanche of rocks and Switzerland has never been invaded by any army since 1499. Defenses are not always perfect as General Patton stated, that fixed fortifications are monuments to mans stupidity".  Sun Tzu, " The supreme art of war is to subdue the enemy without fighting.  My quote is screw em' all but 6 and baptize them in sh*t  or If I follow anyone they are in chains. whoever said it ," if you want a friend get a dog was a deep thinker and knew the frailties of the human condition.  If you see a dog growling at it's own shadow think of me I have trust issues    
    • they'd better be learning hand to hande, working out, gun handling, dryfiring and studying survival subjects on the kindle reader, grinding grain, checking the nets and traps, etc. What makes you "think" that there will BE any leisure time?
    • a lot depends on what the critter has been eating. Rat probably tastes a lot better than squirrel that's been eating hedgeballs.
    • make a world of difference. So does the polypro bag that i put between the "breathable" and heavy-duty mylar bags. The soft armor boxer shorts and vest  help quite a bit  as insulation from the ground as well as padding on hard surfaces.  Now I'm good down to 20f, no problem in the hammock, or on the ground if there's any debris for padding/insulation. If I had better circulation in my legs, or if i'd use a Dakota fire pit to heat rocks and water bottles, i could go 10F colder.  But then need the super shelter and a fire all night, for colder temps.  If have several pits and use them all night to heat rocks, those rocks will warm  you most of the next day, placed under your hammock, or your raised wooden bed. Thus, no smoke for enemies to see. The later afternoons are typically 15F or more warmer than late at night, and you can usually get away with a Dakota pit fire a bit before dusk, since they'd have to try to find you in the dark.  That is, if you've got night sights and night vision. :-)  Anyone moving in that cold is going to crunch snow or frozen twigs. So the guy who's holding still is a lot more likely to be the one who detects the enemy first.
