Sprinkler systems lacking in high-rises. What can be done?

A fatal fire that broke out at a high-rise condominium in Honolulu resulted in three fatalities. The fire broke out in a unit on the 26 floor of the 36-floor high-rise. The victims lived in two different apartments on the same floor as where the fire started. Investigators are still trying to determine the cause of the fire.

Sprinkler systems not in all high-rises in Honolulu

Could the fatalities have been prevented? Possibly, if the high-rise had installed a sprinkler system to stop the fire from spreading. The Honolulu Fire Chief said that the sprinkler system would have "confined the blaze to the unit where it started."

The dangers of distracted driving are all too real

2015 was a year of record fatalities. Almost 40,000 people lost their lives in a car crash, the most since 2007. The number one cause of traffic accidents? Distracted driving. 3,477 people were killed, and 391,000 were injured because of distracted driving. 

Distracted driving is when the driver of a car is driving and doing something else that takes their eyes and mind of the road. A distraction can occur in a flash, with results that might be long-lasting such as death, maiming or disability.
