With two major fires in Chelsea one at five thirty in the morning and the other at eleven thirty a serious failure in the Chelsea public safety response system comes to light. The police who have anywhere between 6 and 12 officers on the street at any time are NOT notified BY POLICY of any reports of building fires ! They are only notified after the fire dept has arrived on scene. Sleeping citizens must wait the extra time for the fire dept to arrive from their stations before being assisted from their homes if needed.
