    May be coming to help

    Hello,

    could you please tell me what the sentence "they may be coming to help you" means here:

    In a fire emergency, do not endanger yourself unnecessarily. Let the professionals do the job. They may be coming to help you!

    Thank you very much in advance!

    Re: May be coming to help

    It's being a bit sarcastic- they are coming to help, but it suggests that people don't always let the experts work freely and try to do things themselves.
