Plaza Theatre is working to correct fire code violations

GLASGOW — Several safety issues brought to light during a Feb. 1 fire safety inspection are being addressed at the Plaza Theatre.

Bill Green, administrative assistant, briefed the theatre’s advisory board at its regular meeting Tuesday.

“This looks serious,” said Wendell Honeycutt, one of the Glasgow City Council’s representatives, when he saw the words “fire code violations” on the agenda.

Some of the items are relatively easy to fix and staff members have already corrected them, Green reported. For example, some of the batteries and/or bulbs for exit sign lighting needed to be replaced, and she has already started keeping a log of when they are checked to better track it, Green said.

Some of the other simple corrections involved removing paint and other items stored underneath a stairwell and removing sandbags from outside one of the exits that had been placed there to prevent water seepage. These have also already been handled, Green reported.

Larger issues included holes in walls around where duct work or pipes goes from one room to another and in ceilings – in one case where it appeared a panel had been moved to access wiring or do other work and in another room where the ceiling appeared damaged.
