Heard a couple of interesting stories this morning from Chief Meaney.
Library – Apparently as a result of clearing snow off the roof of the library this winter, a gas leak was caused and the gas was flowing down into the building by means of a small vent.
When the two chiefs were there investigating (if I got the numbers right), the gas is dangerous if over 5% concentrations, and that day in the library it was about 40%. Chief Kingsbury instructed all to keep their arms raised to avoid static electricity and to walk out of the building right away.
Ace & Acme – The drivers have been on strike for more than a week, supporting teamsters arrived to picket from out of the area, and the police have been present 24/7. Lots of bad language being used, which the Chief asked cease when the school buses of kids passed by. The owner has reportedly opted to close the business.
