WOW, I wonder if the parents are going to let them look after their kids because of this.

In an interview the mother said that 'she has no problem with how the situation was handled and will continue to bring her daughter to the daycare'. Understanding the situation and it is not what the media attempted to make it out to be.

I wonder WHY the post office decided not to help out?

Further more, you do NOT leave anyone behind.

I wonder if she would have felt the same way if it was a real fire, Im sure she would have said "Its alright you left my baby alone during the crisis, I understand you were busy.."

Let me put this into perspective for you.

The daycare is in a strip mall. The next nearest building is the postal station across the alley. The next nearest is a furniture store 1/4 block from that.
The legislation regarding employee/child ratio requires that only two adults are required for 15 children. Normally the daycare has three, but one was off sick that day. A rooftop ventilation unit overheated and the staff smelledsomething. ( No one saw smoke). Immediately, the two women began bundling the babies from cribs, and carrying them ( they can only carry two babies at a time) out the back door, across two parking lots and alleyway[/b] to the postal station, the nearest building. The employees at the postal stationrather than offering to help evacuate childeren to safety told the women not to bring any kids here!!! The women then had to run over to the furniture store and then back and forth for the rest of the children. The owner had returned for the last child and firefighters were on scene already. All this transpired within minutes as the fire hall is straight down the avenue.

Read Lily's comment.

Who are you going to leave behind if there are 3 to save but you can only get 2 to safety? Or will you let them all perish because you can't make the decision?

You don't leave one behind, period. You put one on top of the other in the stroller, you have the ones able to walk hold the stroller, whatever. But you DO NOT leave one behind.

I wouldnt not take on so many children, would you Captain a ship that has life boats for only 2/3 of the crew? The owners are at fault, they rolled the dice by being understaffed and it came up craps. They should blame no one other then themselves.

What you are all failing to realize is that there was no fire! The women 'smelled something' that indicated there may be a fire somewhere, and they erred on the side of caution!

I don't know about you, but I have been in similar situations before inasmuchas I have 'smelled something burning' and 'go investigate the source' before I decide what I should do. These women immediately started evacuating the children!

That is not the point Yogi.

THIS time there was no fire, lucky them. If there was, that same day, they would still have been understaffed and not been able to take all of them out at once.

I'm not missing anyones point at all!

By LAW they had enough staff. Only two are required.

Normally, there are THREE staff. ONE PHONED IN SICK!!!

Now, at that point in time Put yourselves in the owners situation. What do you do?

Read my post about what I would have done.

In regards to the understaffing, have some reliefs you can call in cases like this.
