“Dear PoPville,

I’m trying to find out if DC laws require condos and/or apartment buildings of certain sizes or generally to have evacuation plans in place. I called DC Homeland Security who told me to talk w/ DCRA. Two people there said “no, not us” and said it was the Fire Department. They transferred me and someone there put me into voice mail for the Fire Marshal (?) The outgoing message said I’d get a call back by the end of the business day or within 24 hours. This was Monday afternoon. It’s Wednesday and no call back.

Who knows if it’s required and/or who does one call to get help?”
