This AM I was at Dunkin Donuts on Route 38 here in Lowell. I was in my car, about to pull out of the parking lot when I noted a silver Honda next to me with white smoke pouring out from the front hood area. The young lady driving the car had gotten out and was looking at it, but without an apparent plan. I got out of my car, wondering where my fire extinguisher was, when I notice a Lowell "Emeergency Management" SUV parked next to me and the driver walking toward the building. I said "Excuse me." and asked if he had a fire extinguisher and noted the white smoke to the gentleman. He said he did not, but immediately got on the horn and within 90 seconds there was a fire engine there and firemen checking the car. Ninety seconds later a Police Cruiser pulled up and the officer stepped out.
Turned out the radiator had boiled over. Good news for all.
I was impressed by the quick response, but also by the very positive and friendly attitude off all the Lowell emergency response personnel. Made me proud as a citizen and made by feel my tax dollars are being well spent.
