You are the company officer on a jump company engine with a crew of three. The dispatcher calls you on the phone and tells you she’s received a report from a passer-by of a “suspicious-looking bottle” lying in the ditch in a rural portion of your response district. You tell her that you and your crew will head out and check on it.
After you arrive in the area, you begin your search of the ditch line, looking for a plastic bottle with a bright blue liquid in it. After a few moments, you find it and take a closer look.
It’s a clear two-liter pop bottle about 2/3 full of a bright blue liquid. Not Gatorade blue, but even “brighter”. You notice there’s no label on the bottle, but evidence that there had been at one time as it appears a paper label had been removed. There is a non-descript white twist cap closing up the bottle. Nothing else is nearby that would not otherwise be found in a roadway ditch.
It seems like the next call is yours here. What would you do with this incident?
