I was out and about town on business today, and I found myself heading for the Columbus Circle station. Just as I arrived, so did 5 FDNY trucks.
Only about half of the trucks actually had their fire fighters get out. That’s usually a sign that there’s nothing major going on.
I followed right behind a crew of guys as they headed down the stairs. They didn’t seem to be in a hurry or care that I was right behind them.
The firemen gathered at the bottom of the stairs and I walked by. False alarm I figured.
Well, from the platform, I can now see that they are moving around. They have their little gas detector machines out. A couple are taking readings at the bottom of the stairs. A couple others are walking around the turnstiles.
This makes me feel real safe. They are looking for some sort of gas obviously, yet people are allowed to just stroll right by them.
Don’t worry folks. Just looking for potentially deadly gasses. Nothing to be alarmed by. Ohh, yeah, other than the airborn cancer. Other than that, you’ll be fine.
Live from the subway, back to you in studio…
