For the last year we have been working on getting a fixed fire escape installed. Robin’s Home is a Veteran Affairs Grant Per Diem recipient and we are required to have the fire escape. The fire escape is an egress for emergencies from our third floor to the ground. We finally secured a grant through Pennsylvania Veterans Trust Fund to cover most of the expenses. We located a reputable company who specializes in fire escapes and secured our building permit. Yesterday the company started digging the holes for the footers. The inspector approved the holes yesterday. Today the concrete was poured for the footers. This is just one small piece of the overall project but it’s a start.
Big shout out to Rita Lane for writing our Pennsylvania Veterans Trust Fund Grant.
