It seems that the neighbor over our back fence had been hearing a beeping noise and couldn't figure out where it was coming from. The fire deparment came out in full gear in the big truck to check things out. They traced the beeping noise over the fence to our trailer. When Steve opened it up he found that the smoke alarm battery was in need of being replaced.
Yes, our tax dollars were spent on firefighters coming out to our house to notify us that we need a new battery in our smoke alarm. Now that's service with a smile.
The guys who responded got a kick out of it and said they were glad it ended with something like that. He said they have searched for hours looking for something beeping in ditches before so they were pleased with the outcome ending so quickly.
