Fire Escape

It would be good if architects, engineers and fire departments could get together to design a universal system to be included on all new buildings for rescue workers to travel up the outside of the buildings. The system should be unobtrusive for aesthetic reasons, although here in SF, buildings of a certain age have ugly metal fire escapes bolted over there facades, and we've gotten used to them.

Until then, my personal solution will be ropes for the lower floors, and a reserve parachute and harness with a static line for the higher floors.
