The district crews respond to multiple, diverse calls every day
North County Fire Protection District responded to a fire alarm this morning, May 31, at Fallbrook High School.
According to the NCFPD spokesman, someone on campus was vaping too close to the fire alarm.
“It (alarm) worked as it was supposed to,” the NCFPD spokesman said. “So this time it wasn’t a false alarm.”
That was just one call in a very busy day for NCFPD. Engine teams from all the stations in the district attend to multiple calls each day that vary from medical aids, to public services, to actual fires, to floods, and more.
The stories the newspaper chooses to run are picked from dozens of daily calls NCFPD receive. The paper writer picks stories with a broader interest. “We can not report on every medical aid the NCFPD crews attend to every day multiple times a day,” said Journalist Karen Ossenfort.
“We want our readership to know that NCFPD crews tackle a myriad of calls each day. They don’t just rescue cats stuck on roofs or in trees or chimneys. Crews don’t just put out fires somewhere every day. They actually do an incredible amount more than that. We just report a tiny bit of what they do every day,” Ossenfort said.
