Besides all of the names people call you or the eggs you have to clean off of the side of the house, there aren’t a lot of perks to being a City Council member, but everyone once in a while a true gem happens along. In the past, I’ve toured and had lunch at the Waste Managment land fill in Van Buren Township. I’ve been bitten by the City’s police dog. Now I’m going to get to be in a fire, or at least a simulated fire — flashover training to be specific.
I know what you’re thinking — this is just another scam by City Council to screw around with services. I can promise you this isn’t a scam, and that City Council members won’t be showing up at your house when there is an emergency. Well, at least not yet. The fact of the matter is I was given the opportunity to take this class sponsored by the Washtenaw Area Mutual Aid Association, and there was no way I was going to pass this kind of opportunity.
I’m not entirely sure what it’s going to be like, but I have a feeling it’s going to be a lot like the video below, hopefully with a lot less Bon Jovi.
To be perfectly honest, I was hoping the training was going to be a lot more Arthur Brown. I already own a pair of flaming antlers.
I think I’ll take them anyway just in case.
