Whatever Happened to Fire Escapes?

Are fire escapes mandatory these days? This one is in the front of the house. Why would one put a fire escape in the front rather than the back of the house? So what’s the threshold if there is one for mandatory fire escapes three stories or higher? I feel like I rarely see them around DC. Do you guys notice them?
