Video from Chopin Street fire at time of evacuation

Listen to the radio transmission

This is an interesting find from the folks at Alertpage Text Alert Notification Service. During a dwelling fire at 12:16 this morning at 4751 Chopin Street the transmission was heard, “Hey, all companies on the scene somebody just took a ladder off of our truck. All companies on the scene somebody just stole a ladder off of our truck”.

    To whomever stole the ladders- You may return them without our thanks.

    What really sucks is that the DFD probably can’t replace the stolen ladder(s). Oh wait, out of those 15 fire companies they just shut down there’s probably a spare ladder somewhere…

    I’m not surprised. One time on a ambulance run in detroit someone stole the license plate off our ambulance.

    @ oldhead…….Nope, someone most likely “misplaced” them and know nobody can find the rest of the equipment either.

    Crazy, man. It’s like a punchline to a bad joke.

    Quick, get them a streetwalker, so they can be a hooker and lad, since they can’t be a hook and ladder.
