Life in Quito. Anecdotes. Ecuador. July 2015.

One Saturday morning my downstairs neighbor found herself locked out of her car and her apartment. What would you do in this situation? Well, she called 911 and asked for a firefighters to come over and get her purse from a locked apartment.
They came upon request, without sirens and other rocket: no police, no ambulance. Group of firefighters marched to our terrace and with the thick black rope one of them descended to her bedroom window, slid the window, got inside, picked up her purse with the keys and delivered it to her on a terrace! Unbelievable! Somehow I don't see firefighters from US (or Russia) doing this.

I talked to them afterwards, they didn't charge her, didn't reprimand her, their visit was free, calm and friendly.
