I wasn't able to attend, as I was flying to DC at the time, but I do believe its fair to say I contributed. You've heard me talking about "Second Signal" over the last several months. Thanks to that system -- now fully operational in Cumberland -- we had at least five additional people on scene to help. This includes a Deputy Chief, a Captain, and a Lieutenant along with other firefighters.
Chief Small wrote me to say that "[the Deputy] was at Cumberland County Emergency Management in Windham at a meeting when he got the firetone text message. It took him a minute to get out of the meeting to head back once he realized we had a confirmed fire. He was able to get up to speed with what was going on so when he got there he could go right to work --- instead of having to converse with me with what had already been done."
Second Signal is almost ready for a public rollout. I can't tell you how excited I am about that.
