Jazz the parrot left firefighters and Netizens in splits.

Firefighters in Northamptonshire, England rushed to a home in Daventry after it received the report of the fire alarm going off. But as soon as they rushed to help thinking there was some emergency, it turned out to be a false alarm. Not a prank, but a parrot’s “amazing” impersonation of a smoke alarm. Yes, you read it right.

Although the beeping sounds of the smoke alarms were heard, there was no fire. It was Jazz, the parrot perfectly mimicking the alarm. Northamptonshire Fire and Rescue Service, who attended the emergency call in a statement explained that in some properties, smoke alarms are monitored by an alarm-receiving company. If an alarm is activated, they try to make contact “with the resident to establish whether there is a fire or if it is a false activation.”

“On this occasion, it appears that while the monitoring company was on the phone to the householder, they could hear a continued alarm in the background and notified the fire service as a precaution,” the agency quoted Watch Commander Norman James.

“When we arrived at the property, the householder assured us there was no fire and we checked and cleaned the smoke alarms to try and prevent further activation. While we were doing this, we could still hear an alarm in the background and soon realised it was African Grey parrot Jazz continuing to do his excellent impression of a smoke alarm!” they quoted him.

The agency said the incident brought a smile of the face of the first responders and was happy that the owner and his pets were safe.

Talking to BBC News, Owner Steve Dockerty, 63, said, “Jazz loves to imitate things and he imitated a smoke alarm so well, they called the fire brigade.”

The news left people online in splits and other parrot owners started sharing similar experiences.
