Re: [AV Media Matters] Fire protection

These systems require expensive planning and installation by certified
professionals. In NYC, one of the large banks (DTC) had a system planned,
which was never approved and was improperly installed. When a pregnant
employee got locked in the vault room, 10000 sq. ft., she pulled the fire
alarm to sound an escape. She stayed locked in while the system pumped CO2
in and suffocated her. She died hours later. This is not an Urban Legend.
