Got a water pipe problem? Most people would call a plumber.

Not Columbia, S.C. councilwoman Tameika Isaac-Devine … she calls the City of Columbia Fire Department. And of course, they came right on over …

On Saturday evening, an uninsulated water pipe connected to Isaac-Devine’s downtown Columbia, S.C. pool house burst – prompting her to call for a little taxpayer-funded assistance. A fire truck arrived shortly thereafter to address the problem.

One of the firefighters responding to the incident said that the Columbia Fire Department “routinely” responds to such emergencies.

Hmmmm … good to know, right?
