Meet Madley Katarungan, Playwright, Composer, Blogger and Housesitter - and as of 4:00 AM today, the new best friend of 'A' Platoon Firefighters at LAFD Station 27.
This morning, Ms. Katarungan wrote:
"If ever there was a time to be blogging, this was it -- yes, tonight after a late night visit with a friend, I was stuck in an elevator for the first time in my life!" (more...)
As part of an ongoing effort to highlight citizen generated media (CGM) regarding the Los Angeles Fire Department, including recent photos and video, we're pleased to share Madley's story.
We think her missive is important to share, as it allows us as Firefighters to better understand the concerns of a person in peril. It is also a great opportunity for us to remind everyone that 9-1-1 is the correct phone number to call whenever someone is trapped in an elevator in Los Angeles.
The City's 3-1-1 number is for information and general service requests - not for emergency response!
In closing, we'd like to thank Ms. Katarungan for her kind words, and assure her that members of the LAFD will do everything in their power to remain worthy of her generous respect and praise.
We also hope that she'll be among the many joining us on Saturday, October 7, 2006 for the second annual Firefighter Festival of Hollywood. The crew from Fire Station 27 will be there, and we trust you will too!
