Um, yeah, a leak of potentially explosive, flammable, colorless natural gas that could and has been known to level buildings - and the FIRE DEPARTMENT was never dispatched.

Mark my words people, it’s only a matter of time when our POLICE DEPARTMENT fails to dispatch the proper FIRE / RESCUE or EMS agency and someone DIES because of it. It’s a shame that the same SERGEANT keeps playing this game with our lives.
