Fire Safety and Mobile Homes

Hosted by

People in mobile home parks have complained for years they are second-class citizens unprotected by the same codes and regulations as other residents of California. Governor Schwarzenegger told a news conference this week he wants to learn why mobile homes "were like matches and caught fire one after the other." The LA Board of Supervisors wants the County Fire Department to tell them what authority they have to set safety standards for mobile homes. We hear from a mobile home owner, a state regulator and Supervisor Zev Yaroslavsky
