Update: Rescue call at Alki, apparently a false alarm

3:53 PM: Big Seattle Fire response on the way to the 2800 block of Alki Avenue SW, for a report of a swimmer possibly in trouble.

3:57 PM: A swimmer has been spotted but first crews on scene says s/he does NOT appear to be in trouble, so they’re canceling most of the units. SFD is also turning back the fireboat they were starting to send through the Ballard Locks.

    We were on the WSB and saw at least 4 different trucks responding.

    Why on earth did they need to send a boat through the Ballard Locks? It’s faster to buy a boat and row to the scene.

Sorry, comment time is over.
