Lastly Dwyer and Flynn provide logical reasoning for why there were struggles with the evacuation process and why there was poor communiction between police, firefighters and co workers and citizens. "The 1938 code had required that the columns of tall buildings be able to stand against fire for four hours; the new code reduced that to three hours. For the floors, the earlier code had demanded three hours of fire protection, the new code cut that to two" (pg. 106) This quote shows how the bulding was getting more and more weak and unsteady through out the years with less fire protection which means the building is not capable to undergo huge amounts of fire and smoke from the attack. Which explains why the building collapsed just a couple hours after the attack.
