  • What is that...A Snake?!

    This morning, 6/27/2003, My station was called into Stratford for a Cover. Just as we signed on responding to the cover station they made it a second alarm, which at night means that my station would have been dispatched anyway. So we head to the fireground and just as were arriving they order the Emergency Evacuation.

    After the fire is under control, myself and another junior are going around the dwelling looking at stuff and grabbing some equipment when one of the guys noticed this object on the ground. One of the guys mentioned that the owner had a snake in the house. It was the exact size as an 1 3/4" hose line. Just imagine if someone grabbed it thinking it was a hose line, then finding out it was a dead snake. Very...different.

        Ya ever notice whenever someone makes one of these "priceless" mistakes... Nobody has a camera. But when you do something... It's front page news, and it turns into one of them firehouse legends....

            Interesting Question......

            So, before anyone picks up the snake, (thinking it is a hoseline) has anyone figured the gpm available thru a snake??? Oh well, didn't think so... Stay Safe....

              I wonder if those fangs work better as smooth bores or fog tips?

                Cost of structure fire at home: $15,000
                Cost of pet snake: $750
                Seeing the look on the Firemans face after he realizes he is holding a dead snake and not the firehose: PRICELESS!
