Forest Fire

So a little excitement in my neighborhood today. I live across from over 200 acres of woods, there is a pond there too.

So here I am sitting in my house when I hear a helicopter REAL loud and it sounds low. So I go outside and see the copter with a big bag hanging from it to scoop up water. It was going to the pond right across from my house. Which is only about 300 feet away. Now I have seen this on TV before but it was pretty neat seeing it so close to my house.

I have never seen so many people drawn to this area in a while. There must have been 50 people at the pond watching this helicopter keep coming back for more water. It came about 25 times to fill up.

Turns out some kids started a fire in the woods with oil soaked rags and firecrackers. In the woods where the fire trucks can't go. Its just not right what kids do nowadays.

So if you heard or saw a helicopter flying low like that, would you go to see where it was or what it was doing?

Are you one to follow fire trucks or ambulances when you see one in your neighborhood?

Just curious, as it was interesting to see all the people that it attracted today.

It must have been very cool to see the copter come in that close. As for following...nope not me, but I would have probably remained on the front porch and watched all the people oggling.

I do go out to see what is going on if I hear helicopters or see an ambulance go down my street. I think it strikes the curiosity in all of us.

I don't follow ambulances but I do drive one. Luckily for my neighbors I have never had a fire truck come to the neighborhood.

Well I give all people who work in law enforcement and firemen a LOT of credit. In fact I have serviced quite a few policemen

We heard a helicopter near our house. We finally saw a police person who told us to go inside and lock our doors and windows. She also asked we call our neighbors and do the same. Since I do PR I called my connections at the local TV station. Come to find out they had the what and I had the where. They were so happy I called. Come to find out it was a pyscho cop who went crazy on his ex and murdered her. He was on the run in my neighborhood.. which is a very safe neghborhod... There's my story.

The firetrucks and ambulances are usually at MY house, lol. Between J being on the fire dept and our friends who work on the ambulance.
