Police did a great job shutting down the road. And by the way there happened to be a house fire, too.

We have shown you previously that the police department in Wellesley, Massachusetts produces regular video reports of public safety activities around town. Sometimes the officers report on a fire, It is very nice of them to think of the firefighters. But there is a price to pay when its a cop production. I had to chuckle when I listened to the narration of the video shot at this three-alarm house fire Friday on Durant Road. The focus clearly was on the police department’s ability to shut down the street. It’s the little things that bring a smile to my face.

    Can’t believe the little red hydrant right in front of the house wasn’t used?!? a third alarm yet. Come on folks. Also the Lt putting the line in the window – without gloves. Like the “deer look in the head lights” look from Quint 3 F/F. I give up………..

    “There were no reported injuries during the incident”. That’s a wonder, since those leather-lung firefighters were up at the window, without SCBAs. Every hear of smoke inhalation or cancer?

    As for the cops’ report, I appreciate that they showed the fire fight, rather than the road closure. Despite what the narration centered on, the real story was the fireground activities, and they did report the size of response and how long it took to gain control.

    Back in the 70s everyone hated the cops aka “pigs” -and looked up to firemen. The police have done a great PR job and turned things around. The fire service not so much.
