Rescue Squad 19Firefighters are the coolest, nicest people you will ever meet. Nobody should ever try to tell me that's not true, 'cause it is! Today (September 5, 1999) I heard a huge amount of sirens and ran to my apartment window. I saw 4 engines, 1 rescue squad, 1 mobile command SUV, and 1 truck. I saw them approaching my apartment building along Massachusetts Avenue, but to my relief they drove by sirens wailing. However, I heard their sirens come to a stop very near it. I quickly gathered up my Mom and my lil sis and we headed down to see what was happening. I knew it had to be a fire of some kind because of the types of units responding. We watched them for about 15 minutes and then we saw them all begin to clean up their equipment. I went down to talk to the firefighter on my side of Massahusetts Avenue. He said that when they had responded they found that there was trash on fire at the bottom of the elevator chute in the apartment across the street. He let me climb inside the cab of their engine and my sister even got to press the pedal activating the loud siren. When they were all inside the engine prepared to leave the kind firefighter allowed me to talk on the radio announcing that, "Engine 28 was back in service". I was overjoyed, to say the least. I have always been fascinated with firefighters and their excellent profession. They are definitely the coolest!!!
