An investigation by WESH-TV revealed that "riggers at the Orange County Convention Center have been violating fire codes while hanging signs, lights and props for various trade shows. Workers scraped off fireproofing which is designed to protect the steel's integrity during a fire. Experts (WESH-TV) spoke with say compromising the fireproofing is dangerous and needs to be corrected immediately. Convention Center managers acknowledged the problem. The county fire marshal was so concerned he ordered the practice stopped."
