Thanks to firefighterdispatch for alerting us to the audio above from a fire yesterday in the 200 block of Hague Street in Detroit. It provides a dose of reality, showing what Detroit firefighters have been facing for a long time now.
Take a listen. It goes from having to verify that any ladder trucks responding have a working aerial ladder (SOP in Detroit), to no thermal imaging camera available on the fireground, to no EMS unit available, to a chief being told he can’t use a police car to transport the woman firefighters pulled from the home and are doing CPR on.
But despite the obstacles, the news story below indicates Detroit firefighters saved a life on Hague Street yesterday and a family is grateful.
