Today a fire truck
Today a fire truck parked in front of my building with sirens blaring. Concerned that my apartment block was on fire, I ran outside with my neighbour, Kelly.
Once we were safely outside, the fire truck moved to the retirement home next door. A few moments later, another 3 fire trucks (and 2 police cars) joined the scene.
Things were getting serious.
They blocked off most of the street and a single fireman entered the building with a walkie-talkie. He came out about 10 minutes later and everybody left.
During the incident, several civilians casually walked into the retirement home, including an old man with a bag full of shopping and a pillow.
This only strengthens my theory that the Columbus Division of Fire don't actually put out fires.
Concerned I was being a little hasty, I did some research:
- Of the 146,144 incidents in 2008, only 17% of them were fire related;
- Of the total, 75% of the incidents were Emergency Medical Services;
- 8% were unaccounted for, but may have been related to the Columbus Division of Fire Bomb Disposal Unit(?).
This kind of overly dramatic event seems to happen every 2 weeks in Columbus.
God bless America.
Someone somewhere in the world just made a delicious chili and I can't stop thinking about it. #mmm
