Oh sweet. Thank you!
So. Emergency response, Paris, France, and let’s assume current year because I’m writing Miraculous Ladybug fanfiction. (Timeline? What timeline?)
Arsonist at work: first target is a cheap long-term-stay hotel, second is this building, third is one of the other buildings adjacent the park in the left of that image. There’s also a false alarm at a residential building somewhere in the same fictional arrondissement as those three buildings. The fires are magical in nature, which everyone responding knows is a possibility–especially since the fires aren’t spreading past those three buildings and aren’t going out–but no official source is sure of that until after the third one starts, which is a couple hours after the first. Probably relevant: it’s midweek and the first fire starts at most two hours before midnight. Not sure if relevant: the mayor is a known corrupt incompetent.
I’m not sure how many emergency personnel are going to be involved, what the scenes look like in terms of casualties and triage and evacuation and whatnot, and what to expect city and community response to be, particularly in terms of making sure the people who get out substantially unhurt get somewhere to sleep and something to eat.
(I’d kind of like it to be the fancy hotel owner’s daughter’s idea to donate a couple nights’ stay to as many of those people as the said hotel (which is a block from that park) can fit, but if someone with authority has already voluntold the hotel to make room, then that won’t work. That hotel might not be their first thought, since there’s a school across the street from the second target; the classrooms wouldn’t be the world’s most comfortable place to sleep but it’d work. But the school’s proximity to the target building might rule it out as a shelter, I’m not sure.)
Also, since Our Heroes are a handful of people with (nontransferable) fireproof magical armor and absolutely no training in emergency response past whatever one would expect a random Parisian teenager to know, they’re definitely going to offer to help evacuate people from the third target, but I’m not sure whether whoever’s in charge of the response would accept, or what instructions they’d give Our Heroes if they did accept.
Definitely relevant: ML!Paris’s response to magical disasters, after like seventy episodes of living under the shadow of a magical terrorist, seems to be a resounding “meh, Ladybug will handle it”, except for the assorted recurring characters who are willing to help Ladybug when it looks like she needs it. Which, since a substantial fraction of the city drowned in “Syren” and everyone was fine by the end of the episode and the property damage didn’t stick around either, seems a pretty reasonable response to have! But again, emergency services aren’t sure this is a magical disaster until a couple hours after it starts, and Ladybug’s not going to be able to reverse the damage in a timely manner this time.
And are there any important questions I haven’t asked?
