Doorbell rang in the middle of the night

I was in a deep sleep, when all of a sudden, my pomeranian, started barking feriously, and ran into the living room. I was about to tell her to stop barking, when I heard the doorbell then too. I didn't know who it was, so I yelled out , and asked who it was. When I heard police department, I was frantic, as I didn't know what to think. I opened the door, and there stood four officers, and the whole enchilada. Police cars, paramedic truck and fire engine. Basically, what it was, they had heard an alarm, or what they thought was an alarm coming from the garage. I told them it wasn't an alarm, as it was an old smoke detector, that was beeping. I couldn't figure out how to get the battery out, so I throught it in the garbage. Well, it went nuts, and wouldn't stop beeping. Anyway, they werre concerned that something had happened, as they were called by the neighbors. I was glad they were there, but also, so embarrassed, as it was a false alarm. It did make me feel good though, that they thought enough of me to come and see if I was okay. I told them thank you, and I was glad they were there, and they were very glad it was a false alarm. In the light of all the police officer shootings lately, it was a very good thing that they were good cops who were willing to help if necessary. At least I know, that God forbid anything happen, that I can count of them being here for me.

It was very embarrassing, that is for sure. I was embarrassed telling them what the beeping noise was. I am not sure what they thought, all I know is thery were glad it wasn't serious or that I got hurt. I am just wondering how many of those kinds of calls they get? I bet not many.

its really good service there and also good neighbor that who think for you and ask to police to come and see whats happened.and its also good that it was false because if there is thief then may be you are in trouble or he stole something. but good work of police that come in quick time.

That they certainly are.I was glad that they came even though it was really nothing. It just goes to show that they were concerned for my welfare, and wanted to make sure that nothing had happened to me. For that, I will alwasy be grateful.
