Hey Sean, run that sucker under the other guy's RV!
hehe hehe...THAT WAS THE PROBLEM- he did the same thing! And I bet he had a tighter coach than I do...it was truly a "boat outta water". I've got a cleaner running genset than he did- couldn't compete!
Roger...I did that, but decided amongst the posts that returned, they were a little outdated- wanted to get the latest skinny
. Check your PM...
OK...here's the latest... (OK...some guy was telling me on the Alternate Channel that the AQMD was the responsible agency to regulate 'air qualiy', so here's my response)...
<BLOCKQUOTE class="ip-ubbcode-quote"><div class="ip-ubbcode-quote-title">quote:</div><div class="ip-ubbcode-quote-content">I stopped off at the CDF firestation today on the way home from work, and talked to a couple of the guys for over a 1/2 hour. First, it wasn't CDF that was taking care of the infield @ Fontucky, but San Bernardino County Fire- need to make that clear. Second, they said that actually, Ventura City Fire has more money than all of San Berdo County (OK...a little stretch, but they're not far off) and therefore can afford those tools more than other counties or cities. Third, they outfit THEIR engines with CO "sniffers" (as they call 'em), but theirs at this particular station was offline because of funds to recalibrate it- they would call a HazMat Team should the need really arise.
Fourth: A CO issue, or any other detectable gas issue, whether at the track, or at your home, would warrant a call to the FIRE DEPARTMENT
as a first response. What they may do is recommend, if they don't find anything out of the ordinary, is a secondary call to the Gas Company- they said they usually have more 'reliable' equipment for a better reading (I'm sure a few Gas Co. employees would LOVE to come out to the track and spend a few hours surveying an issue if given the chance
). Makes sense you would cal the FD first- the Gas Company (nor the Chevy Geo AQMD vehicles) usually doesn't come out in a fire truck
They laughed at the idea of calling the AQMD: a specific comment was: "yep...only if you're polluting the whole valley, and who would do that willingly if they were the culprit?". Good point!
The biggest thing I got out of our conversation is that venues such as California Speedway definitely "spec out" what equipment is required to watch over their events (because they are hired), and that the best suggestion for me was to send a letter (or email) to the Speedway management detailing my concern(s). They also, in most cases, supply their 'Public Safety' vendors with equipment that otherwise would not be available by the agency(s). I would call this valuable information now that I know this. An email is in the works as 'we' speak.
Of course, I assume there are other differences between departments/cities/county/state governments. </div></BLOCKQUOTE>
What has beat all he!! is that my wife called me about 7:30am this morning, telling me that ALL THE SMOKE ALARMS WERE GOING OFF IN OUR HOUSE! She called 911, and they came blaring with lights (no sirens- she told them no evident emergency). They checked out everything, found nothing, and their only advice was "maybe one of the unit's sensors needs to be cleaned".
I AM NOT KIDDIN' YA...doesn't seem to be my week for eletronic sensing equipment. Now to try to acertain WHICH smoke detector cried 'Wolf". Whatdayawaanathink I'll proly be replacing all of them...
Sheesh...just can't get a break, man!
