Perth WA Fire Engines

The fire engines arrive at my motel at 6am in the morning. Luckily it was a false alarm.


It’s a good idea to get up early if you have some jobs to do before riding the local bike tracks. However I recently got a special wake up call in my West Perth hotel at 6am. And I didn’t have to book it!
I initially had no idea what that humming noise was that woke me up. I thought it was machinery or a truck in the service station behind the hotel. The internal fire alarm wasn’t ringing like the one in front of the hotel. But I knew what the alarm was for when I saw two fire engines turn up in about 10 minutes after it started.

I did smell smoke but discovered it came from on of the firemen who had attended another fire earlier that evening. Phew!

Well it ended up being a false alarm. Maybe on of the guests decided to have an early morning cigarette even though its a non smoking hotel.

Anyway its one way to get me started early so I could spend more time riding Perth’s beautiful bike trails. Have you ever had an unexpected wake up call where you stayed?
