Fire Marshall Fruit Fly: New Local Hero?

The day started innocently enough. Rustling of papers, drinking of water, rolling of eyes. Shortly after 1pm it all changed. Before we knew it alarms were going off and the building was evacuated.

This was NOT a drill! Everyone needed to stay clear for their safety. But what if someone tried to enter the building because it did not yet have smoke billowing out of it? We needed a door monitor!

Even men with guns couldn't get by the girl in the sweater that was now sitting funny because of her cleavage creating undershirt. Nope! She was a force to be reckoned with. The utmost pillar of safety!  But what do you do when the fire alarm system has been damaged? If a fire breaks out, the alarms won't go off and the fire department won't be notified. Well, you elicit the help of the Fruit Fly! Besides, she wasn't busy after 5 o'clock.....

The challenge was given and I accepted. I vowed to protect the building, nay, the community! This building would NOT burn down on my watch!

It is important to be prepared in any type of situation. As the sole person in charge of a 3 story building, plus basement, I made it my goal to know all of my options and formulate the best plans for any scenario!

I was feeling very confident in my decisions. If a fire was to happen on my watch, the City would be safe!

I was officially on Fire Watch!!  I was taking command, so much so that you might want to call me Captain EO!

Would I be prepared for the fight? Heck yes! I was armed and ready to kick some serious ass!

Big or small, no fire was going to defeat Captain EO!

So, the lesson for today.... Safety First, Be Prepared!

In the end, the building was safe, thanks largely in part to my dedicated efforts! I don't want to brag. I just did my civic duty. I am but a humble servant.
