It was a dark and stormy night - and day - and night
Having just spent a mostly sleepless night after quite a round of storms, I was wondering what different departments do about responding to calls during severe weather. We currently leave responses up to the CO's discretion and notify dispatch of any delay.
We got called out for a lightning strike on a house during the middle of a tornado warning. Fortunately the damage was minimal (both fire and tornado), but one engine had to break out the chain saws to get back to the station.
On a related note - does anyone have a storm shelter at their station?
