Re: Astro Orbiters Fire/Now Closed
I'm thinking the reaction from the fans now is more hindsight. Small Fire is a fire. Reedy Creek Fire stated they had no problem extinguishing it so it required a response. Firefighters generally arrive by fire trucks. When Reedy Creek firefighters get this call they are responding to a fire at an attraction that is up in the air which guest load by elevator. I'm am guessing but with confidence that Disney has certain areas that will accommodate larger firetrucks with ladders that are capable of evacuation of CM's and guest from an elevated platform. I'm also confident the Fire Dept. has routes predetermined. Remember when the bridge was out they could only redirect the parade in certain directions because of clearance.
I am for one happy the Firefighters responded this way. I cannot imagine Reedy Firefighters have the desire to create drama, nor do I believe drama is in the best interest of Disney. You never know when a small fire can expand. Example, the damage is short order to the Tiki Room. I would expect firefighters react the same way to hotels, schools, airports etc., they are professionals.
