My Peeps, Saving Her Peeps

I received the following text a few minutes ago:

LOL! FD here for elevator malfunction...6 peeps stuck.

She was kind enough to snap a few pics and send them along.

Oddly enough, I was in the den when the call came through and I heard it on the radio. As they went to a TAC channel, I couldn't hear the details but from the looks of the second picture, it appears that they got them out just fine.

These guys are from Sta. #1, aka the Big House, where I was assigned for quite a few years back in the day. A four person engine and a three person truck should have been the response.

There are numerous elevators in the district, some of which tended to be problem children. The building in the above photos is only a few years old and other that the usual "new building" alarm issues, hasn't been much of a problem. Hopefully it stays that way.

BTW, here was my response to The Saint:

LOL my peeps rescuing ur peeps! I hope u gave them a hug for me.

I was serious about the hug, I miss these guys! I'm guessing that they had already cleared by the time my reply hit The Saint's phone. Maybe I'll just have to do it myself.

Thanks for reading,

  1. How do you get an elevator unstuck? Do elevators ever fall?
