Interesting Fact: One of the first fire escapes of any type was invented in 18th-century England. In 1784, Daniel Maseres, of England, invented a machine called a fire escape, which, being fastened to the window, would enable him or anyone for that matter, to descend to the street without injury.[citation needed] Abraham Wivell created an improved design, including an escape chute, after becoming superintendent of the “Royal Society for the Protection of Life from Fire.”[2] Henry Vieregg patented the first US fire escape in Grand Island, NE in November 8, 1898 U.S. Patent 614,043, serial number 681,672, which was designed for traveling businessmen.
