In case a building or structure or part thereof falls and persons are known or believed to be buried in the ruins, it shall be the duty of the Building Inspector and of the Chief of the Fire Department to cause a search of the premises to be made for the rescue of the living and the recovery of the bodies of the dead. For such purpose he may temporarily hire persons and temporarily hire or purchase the materials, ways, works and means which may be necessary. Whenever, in making such search, it shall be necessary to remove debris from the premises, it shall be the duty of the various departments of the City, when called upon by the Building Inspector, to cooperate and provide a suitable and convenient dumping place for the deposit of debris.
