House was saved. Fire was confined to the room of origin courtesy of THREE staffed pieces of apparatus showing up with 3-7 minutes of dispatch. If they still had to wait for two volunteer pieces the "paid farmin" would have been coming from 16 and would have been on their own for at least ten minutes. I would tell you to go back to station 13, but you tools don't have a station, or territory. Thanks again for leaving.

Not a bad response considering it came out of HQ. Tower 16 takes 4-5 minutes to get there because she's so slow. And at least they were there. Go stir that crap somewhere else. And shout out to ladder 5, you gents were there very quickly. Our people appreciate both volunteer components coming to assist.
