something you never want to hear
We were toned today with our local ambulance to stand by our station and wait further instructions. We thought, well cops must have a meth lab or some bogus bomb threat somewhere. We called our dispatch and were told that there had been a shooting in the grade school, officers were responding and to standby. It wasn't 20 minutes before that i had just sent my 6 y/o son with my neighbor who is a teacher to school. My heart dropped, almost everyone at the station had kids in school. In my years at that firehouse i have never heard our station so quiet, no one said a word. After 15 minutes of running game plans through my head and pacing around,we were told to stand down. Seems someone thought it would be funny to get ahold of a school radio and scream multiple times about a shooting. Thank god it was a hoax and man did i ever hugs my kids when they got home.
