Fire investigation at Truglio’s

9/2/2008:

Normally, I don’t publish each and every false fire alarm or careless cooking call overheard on the Live Hoboken Police and Fire Scanner, but something about a call this morning (8:20am) caught my attention.

For starters, the Hoboken Fire Department does a fantastic job in our city, as they should, considering the size of our municipal budget.

However, when the HFD responded to a call for “odor of smoke in the basement of 1000 Park” (Truglio’s Meat Market) something made me a bit worried. First responders said there was a slight haze of smoke, and what smelled like burning paper. With no fire visible, they asked where the Thermal Imaging Camera was. Another unit said it was in the back of a truck, but wasn’t working. Thermal Imaging Cameras are important tools for firemen, and play a vital role in identifying fire in the walls (“creep”).

You’d think with our 5-star budget, we’d never run into a situation where a critical piece of equipment would ever be broken.

Regardless, after further investigation, it was determined there no fire and companies packed up and returned to service.

Anybody want to bet the building goes up within 6 months? When it does how many want to bet the camera still don’t work and they will be short on manpower that night?

so the thermal imaging camera isn’t working but it’s still loaded onto the back of the truck?

… and then post 500 pictures of him delivering it on the “Official Hoboken Website”/Davey Robert’s myspace.

Instead if fixing the thermal imaging camera, Mayor Roberts is going to ask the council to bond $4 million for the Predator.
