Asking for Trouble?

This communique just arrived from City Hall:

“Mayor Menino and Boston Fire Commissioner Roderick Fraser … will celebrate the opening of the new, state of the art training facility, a six-story tower and two-and-a-half story concrete structure with 16 burn rooms, a maze, a tactical tower, and an elevator-training simulator. Two brand-new ladder trucks will also be on display, and the fireboat will be stationed off the shore of Moon Island. BFD recruits will also perform exercises.”

Given this occasion, I’d like to be the first one to ask the question: Will it have a weight room?

    In the same vein, the Globe describes a 2-car collision staged by the State Police at Devens for training purposes, link,
    They could have done the same thing for FREE in Lynn, where two police cruisers collided last week on their way to the same call, demolishing both.

    I wonder if the BFD recruits have the plans for the maze on their cellphones yet.

  • Boston Knucklehead

    Maybe they can hold bodybuilding contests there.
