I've done it twice, and there were no sirens.  The last time I did it was more than 10 years ago,so I don't know what they do now.  But they came with equipment including a padded container on a long pole that could be transported by people at the distance of several feet away on either side.  One guy was suited up with Kevlar.  How they got the stuff in the container is unknown to me because we all had to evacuate the area.   Where they took it is also unknown to me.   I'm so old that I remember the good old days when we put the bottles on the tarmack of the parking lot and shot at them with rifles until they blew!!  Safety used to be such fun.  Monona

Have you contacted the squad and see if they would respond and if so, do they use the lights and sirens?
