Fire Protection and Security at the Denver Federal Center

- Full Report:
Tenant agencies in the Denver Federal Center have dangerous housekeeping practices, and half of the space in the Center does not have sprinkler systems.
The Regional Administrator said that the tenant agency personnel were not interested in fire-safety courses and that funding for sprinklers had been hard to obtain. The headquarters officials said that the region has the authority to enforce fire-safety regulations, and should report violators to tenant agency heads who are responsible for taking disciplinary action. Furthermore, regional administrators must decide how much to spend on sprinklers and coordinate such work with other building repairs. The four officers of the Federal Protective Service protecting the Center seem to compare favorably with the local community's force.
