Fighting fires in Harper City, Maryland County, Liberia

We have a fire department here in Harper City.  I’ve never seen a fire truck, nor have I seen designated fire fighters. In fact I have not seen any fire extinguishers anywhere on campus.  Having lived in an apartment complex and experienced a devastating fire, I think about fire safety very often.

Walking across campus the other day I noticed smoke on the horizon. Not knowing about any three digit emergency numbers here in Liberia, I called the university security command center to report what I saw.

There's a fire in the fields behind Tubman Hall, the faculty residences. Luckily it is the rainy season so  the ground and the shrubbery are wet, retarding its growth.

They reassured me the matter would be handled promptly. What I saw next first shocked me, then evoked hysterical laughter, then set me wondering what would happen if the fire was in one of the buildings rather than in the fields, or if this fire in the fields was happening during the dry rather than the rainy season!

Our trusted security guard goes out alone, armed with his night stick, to beat the flames until they are extinguished.  It was a long, long fight as the flames easily danced away.

Crazy, crazy, crazy! What do you suggest I do? What would you do?
