    One that is activated. Will those clamps work for the metal fuse and glass/expanding fluid type sprinklers? If so, where can I buy one? No need to reinvent the wheel.

      Yes they do. Once the head activates the metal fuse or glass bulb is gone. The clamps fit in the space they once were & blocks the water flow. I'll try & find where you can get them.

        As a volunteer firefighter, I've been there and done that.

        There isn't a way to do it without getting wet, so we just use 2 wooden wedges (like door wedges) and use them to wedge in and shut the sprinkler down. That works for the short term, until we can get the water shut down.

          I was gonna say, where's the learning experience for the probationary on the truck to go wading in and wedge the sprinker?

            Excellent. It's only a matter of time before it happens with all the sprinkler heads we have. Thanks!

              I'll keep that trick in mind until I get the clamp.

                Not even a word of thanks.

                This is just one of many water leaks that I have caught while on patrol, saving the client thousands. Neither the branch nor my supervisor has ever said: "Good Job." In fact, some of these water leaks weren't even noticed by officers on duty before me.

                Needless to say, this is very discouraging and right now I just feel like doing what the other guards do.....nothing.

                  One of my supervisors called yesterday. He wanted to let me know something I did wrong. Never hear from him when I go above and beyond. Ingrate!!!

I suggest that first aid kits contain gel soaked bandages specially made for burns/scalds. I know of & use 2 makes. Burn Gel & Burn Free. They work great An over the counter pain killer sometimes helps.

                        Never do this! Oils and ointments insulate the burn, causing the burning to continue.

                          That would be it, yes. I walked into the guard post one day and found one of the day shift guards using it to remove glue that was stuck onto the desk.

                          He said that was what they gave him to use.

                            The only upshot is that it makes the burned flesh more flavorful. Unless you plan on serving the burned area, why make it more flavorful?

                              PS: He also said I take too long on my patrols. Must be making him look bad. WBS is what they want, then so be it.

                                Mr. Security:
                                It happens when you do not wear blinders. What do your post and/or patrol orders state? Are you just to make a ride by or look for things out of place or that may pose a danger?
                                He may not have the experience or the moxie and therefore represent "bright-eyed and bushy tailed." That will make a novice superior nervous.
                                In a subtle fashion, what five elements need to be in place to establish a crime or point in that direction? Don't push it, look deadpan and watch the facial expressions.
                                Enjoy the day,
                                Bill
