I called the dept and the lady that answered said this was an emergency and she would connect me to 9-1-1. wow, really?
I told the 9-1-1 operator what happened and he immediately dispatched a truck. They arrived within minutes, and had the doors open in no time!
Thank you Amy for the tip to call the fire dept! So, if this ever happens to you, now you know what to do! or maybe you already knew.
And just so you know Preston was all smiles when the fireman took him out of the car! But is somewhat traumatized because I did end up going to what was left of b.study and as soon as I put him back in the car he started crying, and did not stop!
A few things to note before you judge too harshly:
*The air was running in the truck.
*Had the air not been running, I would have considered that an emergency and called 9-1-1.
*No, we don't have a spare key to the truck. I lost it a long time ago in a move.
*I have never locked my keys in my car before...or my child! This was a first for both!
*I was shocked at how fast they arrived at our house. Honestly, this has been a concern of mine b/c we live on the edge of where 2 cities meet...so they call the department for the city we live in, but that's def. not the closest. So after this little trial run today, I am confident that if our house ever caught on fire it might not totally burn down.
*The firemen were working on both doors at the same time, but with different techniques. One of the techniques was exactly what J was doing earlier before they got there. I think J would have had the door open given a little more time. You're still my hero, babe! ;)
*And yes, all this happened on my birthday. I will remember this birthday for a long time to come! Plus, I'm not counting anymore birthdays after this one anyway!!
