1. Training gap led to response delay to Citadel Beach House fire
The Citadel Beach House is under repair, after a fire in the early hours of May 8th destroyed it. The call for that fire did not come in to 911 until after the flames were already through the roof and Isle of Palms Fire Department could not handle it on their own. A woman yells, "4700 Palm Boulevard! It's a huge fire!" That's one of the calls that came into 911 that night from one of the people who was inside the Citadel Beach House. Because the fire was so involved, IOP asked for backup before they even arrived. Over the radio, you hear a firefighter say, "Go ahead and send the two units from Mt. Pleasant and Sullivan's Island to the Citadel Beach House please." But it took nine minutes from that request to even notify backup. Isle of Palms Fire Chief Ann Graham says, "I cannot predict how much more of the building would've been saved in that nine minutes, but I can say it delayed our interior attack, and it delayed a second hydrant, and it did delay additional equipment and manpower."
