I welcome efforts to make the document clearer, but more than clarification is needed - the full technical review of ADB needs to lead to concrete policy changes that will make people safer. These changes should include: external fire spread; increased use of sprinklers; ways to support the safety of our most vulnerable members of society; and how firefighters are supported with suitable access and facilities.
