Rapid Response

Grapevine House Fire 04

 

Today I am thankful for a modern convenience that frequently gets overlooked, until you need it.  Wednesday night was a big fireworks night.  A home a block away lost control and the structure caught fire.  Our modern firefighting system and rapid communications system were on top of things and the blaze was under control before too much damage was done.  All it would have taken is 30 more minutes before a response could have been deployed and the entire home and the surrounding houses would have been a complete loss.  Even my home could have been in serious danger.  Instead there were no serious injuries to either people or properties.  In fact we sat back and watched the blaze from our bedroom with no concern at all.
