Description

This investigation, sparked by a fire at Wasatch Junior High School in Salt Lake City, found that many schools in Utah lack modern fire safety features. The authors found that the fault lies mostly with fire inspectors, who are often ill-trained or inexperienced. The inspections are inconsistent and do not occur regularly, which is why there are no recorded inspections for Wasatch Junior High School for years prior to the disaster.
