This is a serious comment now:

Why not compulsary zip lines to lower buildings, say minimum of 4 corner lines to varing levels of "escape building" levels below.

This would them cover mas evac from lower fire or floods, or a possible terrorist attack, and therefore collaspe worry.

Its cheap to do and can evac everyone in hours. Esspecially if one of those zip line escape buildings happens to be a hospital or coast guard

Okay, lets say the ability to create zip lines from building to building.

I just had a pretty good idea as to why they cant or wont, Helicopers.

Some "emergancy measures" are there to protect a panicing crowd more than actually saving those who know what to do. The fact theres a way out available makes all the differnce when you are talking about getting tramped to death.

I think id enter a building just that bit happier if i knew there was a way to get off the roof without a chute. Weather it was 100% safe or viable.

Zip lines are fun anyways why wouldnt a 60 story life or death escape route be slightly awesome

Seems like you watch too many cartoons...I got an idea for you...why not have a rocket in your office and if you need to escape light the fuse, sit on it, and shoot out of your office like Wiley Coyote!! Your idea is so out there...hey, why not have parachutes on planes...just in case something happens?? Your brain is flooded with government fear.

Ok maybe the term "Escape Pods" is a little to much science fiction
but its ATS .. most members understand that i was meaning LIFEBOATS

if you think about it .. its easy to pile them up in a storage room
and it could save many lifes in case streets get flooded
