I'm hearing a ton of sirens off San Andres on the Westside. I can't tell if it's closer to Mission or Castillo Streets, but does anyone know what's up? Another fire?
There were a lot of sirens for it to be a medical emergency.
the beginning of the fire? i also heard them and then 1 hour later smelled the smoke, so i'm not sure if they are related
There were 2 separate medicals...as Roger said "Medical emergencies". I was monitoring all channels during that time from around 4-6pm. There were a couple crossovers due to an initial mutual aid for the structure fire I posted by the County. This was canceled so the 2nd in engine (71 or truck 1) was responding back to I think 76 and also 74 out of position. One call was Cucas. I don't post medicals...ie , I hear 1 engine and AMR I don't even turn it on. 2 or more engines I start listening especially if County or LP since I live in San Roque ( you can hear the different siren calls) and always for the latter and especially now.
