Grand Venetian Fire in Tower 3000 Event occurred December 16, 2018
 
 
 Analysis of fire and what it means to safety of the  Grand Venetian
                                        Submitted by Dennis Mayo, Retired Fire Chief
Background                    
 
At 8:20 in the morning of December 16th a major fire occurred in Tower 3000, Unit 1705 of the Grand Venetian.  Occupant of 1705 was hospitalized due to smoke inhalation. At this time cause of fire is undetermined.  Contents of condo were completely consumed by the fire.  Fire intensity breached the terrace sliding glass doors allowing fire smoke and fire to move upward to other apartments.  Smoke damage spread to 4 floors above the fire.  Smoke and water damage also occurred to the apartment below the fire, in total 14 apartments were damaged.  
 
I have heard many times that we do not have a fire problem at the Grand Venetian because of our building materials.  It is true, that the building structure of the Grand Venetian is noncombustible.  However the contents (furniture and household items) are combustible and emit intense flames and extremely toxic and deadly smoke. Notification of the fire was made by the lobby telephone.  It must be noted that Tower 3000 has no early detection (smoke detectors) and no early warning (audible alarm system to notify occupants).  
 
Actions by Tower 3000 personnel demonstrated proper action in this significant emergency by:
 
*Maintenance staff turned off gas and electricity to minimize damage
 
*Occupants were told to evacuate their apartment by going down the stairs to the lobby.  Personnel knocked on apartment doors to notify occupants of apartments of the fire event.  Once in the lobby evacuees were then directed to go to meeting point at main gate.
 
*Tower 3000 Administration has an accountability report to determine whom and how many occupants are in each apartment. 
 
*Tower 3000 personnel determined the fire location, reported the location to the fire department and prepared the fire fighting hose that is in each stairwell.  Due to the extreme danger and lack of equipment Grand Venetian personnel cannot enter the fire incident. 
 
Where do we go from here?
 
This fire occurred in the hours of daylight when occupants are awake and active within the Grand Venetian.  What if this fire occurred at midnight, or 3:00 a.m. when people are asleep and inactive? Since there are no early warning devices (smoke detectors) and no early detection devices (audible alarm alerting system) the outcome could have been deadly. Installation of these devices is the first step in giving occupants the ability to become aware of a fire and to exit the building as soon as possible.  We cannot
rely on Grand Venetian personnel to knock on our door to make us aware! Smoke and fire will likely prevent Grand Venetian employees from reaching your unit to give notice.  Fire doubles in size every 30 seconds, time matters! I strongly encourage all owners to install smoke detectors in your apartments. Installation of early fire detection, early fire warning and automatic sprinkler devices need to be evaluated by your respective Tower Council members.  Your life may be dependent on the installation of these devices.
 
Tower 2000 Council takes action
 
Recognizing the lack of any alerting system to warn occupants of impending danger Council of Tower 2000 is developing installation of a siren system for Tower 2000.  A siren would be utilized to warn occupants for all risks where immediate evacuation is required.
 
Respectfully,
 
Dennis Mayo Tower 2000
