Nothing went wrong but I took 3 of us 8 hrs to cut down 2 Bradford pear trees yesterday, hauling away the brush and cutting up the wood

I quit hauling away brush a few years ago...  after I got the PTO chipper.  I make chip piles now.

At some point (most likely between 4-5 am) I hears on the scanner "La Salle Captain One on the scene".

I did't hear the dispatch or anyone go into service...

or any other chatter at the scene or them leaving the scene!!!

I was just awake enough to realize it wasn't here so I rolled over and that was it...

back to dreamland!!!

And just like that the 'quiet' ends...

Two men standing on top of their 18' boat which is completely underwater!  At least they kept a cell phone dry.  They estimate they're out about 3-5 miles and between the Fermi and the coalburner.  That's a lot of area to look for a small object.  The Coast Guard is responding too.

The dispatcher was able to get GPS co-ordinates from the victim's phone and is giving those to the Frenchtown FD responders.  Hopefully they can plug those into whatever unit they use (generic is Garmin) and navigate their boat directly to that point.  The boat will be moving some but shouldn't be out of view.

The victims are stating that they are in about 25 feet of water and the water is up to their chest.  They do have life jackets on.

The Frenchtown boat has located the victims. 

Central had lost contact a few minutes ago although she did say that the victims could see the boats heading towards them.

A person stuck in an elevator call...  not something we hear around here very often.

At Merkle funeral home on Sunday Dixie!!!

Remind me to avoid the elevator there :o

There were a few times yesterday that things were crazy busy on the fire channel again.  Frenchtown had another water rescue at the state park...   a 12 yr old in his rowboat got caught up in the offshore wind and couldn't get back to shore.  Before responders arrived a good Samaritan went out in his kayak and retrieved the boat and the boy. 

I heard a department being assigned emergency channel 3 at least a couple of times.

The call at Merkle's for the stuck elevator only took a few minutes. 

Then the strangest call of the day was the last one I heard before I dozed off. I actually hope I heard the 'age' wrong on this one but my ears still seem to be in pretty good condition although sometimes the scanner gets a little garbled.

The call was at the state park (3rd one of the day) in the campground.  A 75 yr old man possibly overdosed on heroin!!!

Again, I hope I heard that age wrong.  You would think by 75 he would have learned the dangers of that life!!!  But, again, we are under a full moon :-\ :-\ :-\

This was one of the rescue calls during the 'crazy time' Friday afternoon!
