  • New MA Fire Regs For Dances

    July 17th, 2011
    contra, dance, fire, law
    I found out yesterday that as of june first there are a bunch of new fire regulations on dance halls. This is what I think bida needs to do:
    • designate a trained crowd manager for each 250 people the hall is allowed to hold, rounded up.
    • complete a checklist before each dance starts letting people in (failures on the checklist must delay the dance until they are remedied). We need to keep completed checklists in the building for a year.
    • Make exit announcements at the start of the dance.
    • Designate someone to make sure the hall doesn't go over capacity.
    I just completed the online training to become a certified crowd manager. It took about 30min and was pretty easy. I now have a certificate and my certificate number is AzhH0bF6Us.

    You can read an faq or the law. I believe these regulations apply to all massachusetts contra dances except ones held in halls certified for fewer than 100 people, but I'm not a lawyer.

    Light Switch

    When I got my loft bed it was just so annoying every morning to have to get out of bed, climb down the ladder, turn the light on, and climb back up, just so I could see stuff. I decided to make a string for my light switch because I really wanted to be abl…
