a jammed fire door


#1

Hi,
Going to be nitpicky again.

  1. “Stephen Schuck said he was responding to a jammed fire door on the 32nd floor when he heard gunfire…” --‘a jammed door fire’ perhaps?

  2. “We know that shots were being fired at the festival lot at the same time as, or within 40 seconds after, the time Jesus Campos first reported that shots were fired over the radio.” (from a Mandalay Bay hotel report).
    –I would surely put it like, “…at the same time as, or within 40 seconds after, Jesus Campos …” You may well say the meaning was quite clear without this twick though…

In my understanding a ‘fire door’ is a fire protection door and a jammed fire door is a fire door that doesn’t open because it’s jammed.[YSaerTTEW443543]
