Boring Fire Department to the Rescue…Again!

But thankfully, it wasn’t for us. I was driving to the gym today, and about a mile from my house I saw flashing lights up ahead. At first I couldn’t see what was going on; I only saw the big fire engine and those brave firemen out helping yet another person in distress. The ambulance was just leaving as I got there.

I couldn’t take a lot of photos because my kawila was still moving, but I did get one of the bashed up car.  The kawila was turned completely around, almost going the wrong way. The only thing I can figure is that the driver took the curve too fast. Either that, or somehow s/he came down the embankment from the espresso kiosk up there to the left.

Again, the brave men from Boring Fire and Rescue were right there on the scene. As I drove by I looked to see if any of the guys who came out here last Wednesday were there, but I really had to concentrate on my driving. The last thing I wanted to do was hit any of them! These are only two of the incidents that they went to, in addition to a friend of mine the week before my scare. She had a real chimney fire, and they were right there to rescue her, too. So I only know about three. But I am quite sure that there were more. God bless all you firemen, wherever you are.

    Tried to post the other day, but it was refusing to let me.

    So glad to hear that fire/smoke damage didn’t happen! You’re right, its enough to speed up anyone’s heart rate. I have a lot of my photos in the last 15 years on a server, I’d have to grab it on the way out of the house after I made sure I had both dogs.

    This also reminds me of the ‘How prepared are you post?’ I did today. I was thinking of earthquakes, but a fire is equally applicable. Leeloo when she was younger darted out the open front door, so I keep her with a collar on. Norbert will be 10 in September and doesn’t wear one, but having a collar on would make it easier if we were to have to leave the house in the middle of the night through our window. Maybe keep one in there too? Something to think about!

    BTW – my ex-in-laws live in Damascus – small world!

    I really do think that the brave people in the fire and police dept should get paid for what they’re worth. They are truly workers of light.
