How dare he touch the radio

Not sure what East Haven units there I was sleeping. JM Car 6, not sure if Sq5 was there or off duty on a medical.

Branford E-1 and Medic 1 were cancelled quickly. E9A went for station coverage at East Haven HQ after no response from E2.

From what I remember been awhile since I been back there should be a hydrant by the front gate and the next closest would be somewhere on the service road behind CarMax or somewhere on Frontage Rd that would be a long lay.

I can't believe a terminal was that much flammable liquids would only have one hydrant!

There are several hydrants in the complex. From what I was told they are all private hydrants that the business owns and the business had them all turned off which made them not working. They dumped a lot of hose to get to where the fire was.

Something is not working with the authority having jurisdiction if they were able to get away with that or it was missed during the most recent inspection.
