People that were trapped above the floor levels impacted  could have been evacuated by only one set of four or five units of ZEC-EM, remaining operative over 25, in few minutes.
The Zephinie   Escape Chute (ZEC) 
can operate over 100 floors.  
Can evacuate up 1000 persons per minute, including handicapped ,  injured persons with the same average escape speed.
Ignorance or bad will
can't invalidate demonstrable

Californians' Support to the ZEC

California Fire Authorities and the Los Angeles Chapter of the American Red Cross fairly supported morally Zephinie not to give up the ZEC project in the USA.

Zephinie had not capital to establish personally the business in California.
To find venture partners or to license the US patents to a West Cost company was the only solution.
Prestigious companies such as Martin Marrieta and Signal Corp., among others, reviewed in deep the project.
All positively interested companies will finally consider that the incomprehensible censure in the USA of a product obvious good enough to be Marketed by UTC-Otis in Europe and the NY opposition, were " scaring off factors for the investor "
Zephinie asked to the Public Relation Director of Los Angeles Chapter of the American Red Cross to convince the New York Chapter of the American Red Cross to do the same. The offer was turned down by NY ARC.

May 4th 1982 the Los Angeles Chapter of the American Red Cross and several local Fire Departments supported a public demonstration of the ZEC at the occasion of the Earthquake Planning Conference in the Century Plaza Hotel
The very successful demonstration was reported by the local TV Evening News and the Los Angeles Times (LA Times May 5/1982 Part# 1/3)
Californian Fire Departments, including: El Secundo, L. A. Down Town, Santa Anna, Santa Barbara was  the only fire Departments to fairly test and support the ZEC Technology in the USA as so far.
