'Cat Stuck In A Tree' Call

By: Lieutenant Rob Furst

On September 16th, 2015, a concerned resident called Fire Station 12. They spoke with the officer in charge stating that they knew that this was an "old school" request, but they would like help getting their cat down out of a tree. 

PE712 proceeded to the address to find a distraught resident whose cat had been missing for a day. The distressed feline was located approximately 30 feet off of the ground in the bifurcated trunk of a tree. The crew of PE712 and the resident were able to persuade the cat to come down to an area that was accessible with a roof ladder. Upon returning to the ground, the cat was reunited with its grateful owner.

Although these service calls are not common, we strive to be a customer service driven organization.

Uh, how can you post an article about a cat and not show the cat! This is the internet! It is powered by cats.
