“Dear PoPville,

My apartment building was affected by the power outage this morning. First time I’ve lost power in 10 years! I was shocked to find that there was no emergency lighting of any sort in the building – no lighted exit signs, absolutely pitch dark in the stairwells, fire alarm lights looked dead, etc. Basically, if you did not have a flash light (or a phone with a flash light), you could not possibly have exited the building. Did some searching online, and couldn’t find anything that would require emergency exit lighting for a large residential building in DC. How can that be?! Am I missing something?”
