Well, the fire department just left and here I am up early again. Did I get your attention? Our smoke detectors went off early this morning. We just had them all replaced a short time ago....less than 9 months... Now...the new ones sound an alarm and a woman's voice says, "Fire, Fire." Scared me to death and I jumped out of bed to investigate. Joe was sleeping peacefully right next to me. He would burn to a crisp, if it wasn't for me. He asked, "Balisha, are you sure you didn't dream this?" I wasn't smiling. I said no, just as the bleeping thing went off again. The sound is out of his hearing range, so he could sleep through anything. Lucky Man! No smoke was in the house.... We thought that we should have it checked out, because it might have been something in the attic. Joe looked for the non emergency # and couldn't find one. He called the non e. # in the next little town. The operator said that she would place a call for them to come out and check. Well, a little while later we had the firemen here in full uniform. Two trucks, a police car, and a hook and ladder. They searched and couldn't find anything. One of them climbed up and changed the batteries in all three and told us to call an electrician if they went off again. They haven't gone off since the firemen left. The batteries were put in just a few months ago....when an electrician put up new alarms...so they shouldn't have needed to be replaced. Joe tested them in his battery tester and they were all OK. So the alarm was a false alarm. We apologized for making them come out. As they left one fireman turned to us and said, "No problem....these guys love to hop on the truck and come out like this."
