Here's a little story bout this alarm box here on 62nd street in Glendale Queens 1980....When I was 5, this troublemaker kid from around the corner asked me if I wanna play with some fire trucks. I thought he was referring to some toy fire trucks cause he had mad toys at his crib. I said OK where are they. He told me to go lift the red latch and press the button and his mom would bring them round. So I pressed the button and wouldn't you know it, the fire trucks did in fact come. Not the toy trucks though, but the real deal ones with pissed off firemen. My older brother threw me a beaten and I was grounded for weeks. Lesson learned that day.
