I repaired this 3rd floor fire escape today 11/4/2015. The last repair was done with glued copper tube. Not as bad as the repairs I often see using aluminum lawn furniture pieces but still dangerous.

 
3 stories high and it's attached to a window frame? With degraded square head wood screws no less.
 
 
 
 
Here's a second story fire escape that was repaired long ago with sections of a lawn chair and sheet metal screws. If someone learned on this railing they would go right over the side. This fire escape should be completely removed and replaced.
 
 
 
I fabricated and installed this fire escape for a Delaware State Trooper next to the old Gross Lighting building.  It had to be inspected by a representative from the Wilmington Delaware's Fire Marshals Office before an occupance permit could be issued for the structure.  I'm happy to say it passed with flying colors and this was my first big job.  I had no shop so I had to fabricate it on site.  I also had to negotiate my way around a live power line with little to no insulation.

 
Now that the the building that housed Gross Lighting is gone you can see this fire escape much better. I built the lower steps and landing. I would not even approach this top landing. Looks to me like the weight of a small bird could take it down.
 
the new view from the road.
