Monsey – Fire Officials Say Dozens Of Religious Private Schools “Rife” With Unsafe Conditions

Rockland County, NY – At a Tuesday night meeting of the school board in Ramapo, a Spring Valley fire official told a packed audience that dozens of the area’s religious private schools are not in compliance with fire safety code requirements and that the schools are “rife” with unsafe conditions.

LOHUD.com reports that Spring Valley fire captain and Tarrytown rabbi Justin Schwartz, who also serves on the Rockland Illegal Housing Task Force, told the audience that the potential for danger due to the lack of compliance increases with each passing day.

“Not only has this board and administration failed in educational opportunities to the nonpublic schools,” Schwartz said, “but it allows outrageous conditions detrimental to the health and safety of the students of these schools.”

Citing an October 6 report from Secretary of State Cesar Perales’ office, Schwartz said about 60 private schools in Rockland County have failed to filed fire safety reports and that in many cases religious students are “commonly crammed” into trailers and single-family homes that have never undergone a single safety inspection.

“Sanitary code violations are rife,” Schwartz told the crowd.
