    We know that Captain Ruiz is capable of saying that in at least 2 languages! (She even told Mayor Kenney to get out of HIS OWN office)

    Kidding aside, Philadelphia has large communities that speak Spanish, Russian, Italian, Chinese, Korean and Vietnamese. Many signs on businesses in northeast Philly are in the Cyrillic alphabet. Along Cheltenham Ave. on the border with Montgomery County are signs in Korean. Chinatown is at least 6 square blocks. There is a Vietnamese enclave near the Italian Market in south Philly.

    “Sign language” is like saying “spoken language” – it is a medium, not a specific language. There are over 300 sign languages in the world and THREE that originated in the USA and are still signed today – ASL (American Sign Language), PSL (Plains Indian Sign Language), and ISL (Inuit Sign Language). The correct way to say that you know a sign language would be like this: “I sign ASL” not “I speak sign language”

    I can see how knowing key phrases of all the common languages you would encounter might be very useful to a firefighter. For instance, if someone tells them “My daughter is still in there!”, that’s critical information no matter which language they speak.
