do you know what happens if you call 311 because your neighbor's carbon monoxide alarm annoys you?
they transfer you to 911 and then within 4 minutes (so fast!) six burly firemen are there. Then a few more pour out from both down and up the stairs, like in a cartoon. They knock once on Neighbor's door, then take out a huge steel wedge and hammer the lock off. Then they broke open another internal door. The cause of the alarm turned out to be a dead battery. whole thing took 15 minutes, start to finish. crazy, huh?
