Sounds like Tamaron - and they probably do have an access, but it's likely been so long, no one had the key or remembered where it was... 

I recall having a large "key ring" for various gates around town - and if the labeling wasn't done right - it was quicker to use the multipurpose entry tools we had available  ;D


I have a pair of the 36" multipurpose entry tools I use quite regularly!




I always love how in the movies or on TV they just 'ram the gate' with the firetruck...

Ok, let's do the math...   $10 padlock, $3500 gate, $450,000 fire truck ??? ??? ???

Actually, the best method is to freeze the padlock shackle with a CO2 fire extingusher and tap it with a hammer.  It shatters btw.

It's difficult to quick freeze the shackle without freezing whatever it's going through (isn't always just a chain)...  besides, it's more prudent to save the CO2 when you have to do an emergency 'cooling' operation on some beer ;) ;) ;)

If quick entry means shattering the shackle too, so be it.  I don't consume beer so thats a non issue here.

One of my more memorable calls
we had to use our "surgical" multipurpose entry tool -   at the Hospital.   

A young person had the chain link from a swing hook onto her Achilles tendon (the back of the heel)
- and the surgeon called for us and our "tools" 
I had a photo of it - but it's faded over the years (an old polaroid)

That had to hurt a little.....

Did you do the cutting or did the Surgeon?

Did they have an autoclave at the hospital big enough to sterilize them before they used them  ??? ??? ???

There have been a lot of slightly strange rescue calls in the last couple of days :o :o :o

I did the cutting -
I'm sure the Surgeon got the $$ however  ;D

We just wiped the cutting edges with alcohol - no sterilization
They had the little one pretty well draped with all those fancy towels so we didn't get em greasy.

MonroeTown is already out on a call where someone backed into a gas meter on their home!  I have heard several of those calls in the last couple of months.  Have people forgotten how to drive (or at least back up) or have they just forgotten where their gas meter hangs :( :( :(

I remember a call many years ago where the homeowner was burning leaves in the fall.  He was out in a shallow ditch in front of his house and the fire got hot enough to melt the plastic service drop going into his house.  His pile of smoldering leaves suddenly turned into a large roaring fire!  He claimed he'd been burning leaves like that right there in the same spot for 20 years!!!

Just heard the 2nd call within the last week or so for a person in a wheelchair that fell out of their chair on a Lake Erie transit bus!  I don't recall ever hearing one before so to hear two this close together makes me wonder what's going on 8* 8* 8*

I'm guessing the bus drivers will be doing some remedial training in the next couple of weeks! 

For the record this call now is just for a lift assist and they're saying "no injuries"...

I don't recall the details on the first one although it sounded like there may have been an injury for that one.

'Rock'in and Roll'in on the LET bus.

IMO, a wheelchair with an occupant, not secured on any transit bus would be a loose cannon, especially with the crazy dtivers out there in Monroeland.

In the back of the bus, driver makes a panic stop and the chair and occupant goes through the windshield....  just say'in. :o

If you're trying to get to Dundee this morning (or I suppose if you're in Dundee and trying to get to Monroe) M-50 is closed between the Kroger store and Dixon Road.  Several power poles down with the transformers on the ground!  I didn't hear what happened to knock them down but you'll have to find an alternative route.  Probably Dixon to Wells Road and then north and it turns into Oak street.

At least you can stop at Schultzs' farm stand get some sweet corn while you're making the detour ;) ;) ;)
