Surprises During Inspections

Have you ever had it happen to you? You know, where you are doing a designated substance survey on a closed up building that is going to be demolished and you walk into the boarded up building and as your eyes adjust to the darkness you notice two bodies lying on the floor? No? Well I have.

Turns out the fire department had been doing some training in the building with smoke cans to practice how to get people out of a smoke filled building, I guess they forgot the training dummies that they were using just inside the door.

Super glad I didn’t scream like the little kid in my head out loud. Also glad the guy letting me in didn’t scream either as it would have just been bad all around.

Super funny afterwards; after my heart left my throat that is! ​
