Public safety codes are routinely ignored inside Rockland County’s non-public schools and little is being done to curb the problem, a **News 12** investigation has found. Rockland’s fire coordinator Gordon Wren says local religious schools have failed to meet fire codes, which he calls “ticking time bombs.” “Most of these codes have dead bodies behind them,” Wren told News 12. He says the fire codes are ignored by dozens of private schools. News 12 spent the past four months investigating the safety of Rockland’s private schools. Many fire safety records were outdated, incomplete or missing and some school officials refuse to comply with the law. News 12 investigative reporter Tara Rosenblum confronts the code violators and finds out who should be enforcing the rules.
