    Smile Humerous Dispatches/Calls

    hey everyone. i know this topic is already on the fire wire page, but i thought it might be interesting to hear what calls or dispatches the explorers and junior firefighters have heard or the calls they have been on. anything that is out of the ordinary would be great. i figure explorers and juniors probably get some of the stranger calls... perhaps getting a bat out of a lady's house? or something else that everyone can get a good laugh from. feel free to post what you wish. stay safe.

    Last year my department was dispatched for a vechicle fire well we went to second tap and on the second dispatch it said:

    Station 33,
    Park St. and Walnut St.
    Honey Brook Boro,
    A working mopead,
    Box 3301

    Sounded pretty strange at the time anyway.

    Once got dispatched to the city jail for a person with "hand injury", It wound up being the perso had a samll cut, The Engine along with Medics had been dispatched but we sent the medics. On scene the medics told the baliffs to simply but a band aid on it. 6 months training as a Paramedic and all they tell me to do is put a band aid on it.

    Cool

    One night our department was dispatched for a women who can see a very large fire from her house. Well we all responded to her house but could see no fire, as it turns out she was an older lady, and the moon was an orange color that night. She saw it just coming up over the mountain and thought the hill was on fire. OH WELL

    I work as an EMT for an ambulance company in Orange County California. Lots of weird stuff happens here. Recently there was a bank robbery followed by a chase of the suspects. The chase ended in a TC. The robbery suspects had to be extricated from their vehicle. While the firefighters were performing the extrication the police officers were standing by with guns pointed at the wreckage. Like the guys were going anywhere.

    Recently our Dept. and one of oour Mutual Aid Dept's. were dispatched on an extrication from machinery. When we arrived on scene we fount a child with his hand stuck in a gumball machine. We proceded to "Extircate" him from the gumball machine.

    Also we responded to a report of a structure fire at a local motorcycle shop named "Johnny Bad ***" Motorcycles, we'll our god fearing dispatcher gives the bussiness name as "Johnny Bad Butt" instead, needless to say when we set up the ICS we had to call it "Bad ***" Command.

    On more than one occassion we have been dispatched to the fire/police safety complex for smoke coming from the dispatch console. The dispatcher even got to declare a situation under control on himself. It was pretty funny. Another time we had a car fire that was going pretty well. A bystander came by to watch us go to work. He stood right by the police officer in his cruiser. Well, little did the guy know that there was a warrant out for his arrest and the officer recognized him from the warrant sheet and took him in. Talk about being at the wrong place at the wrong time for that guy.

    Not exactly a call but still pretty funny.
    One night when heading back from the vollenteers' metting in the engine, the guys hit a skunk. The cab was full and we had one in the jump seat.
    The following radio traffic is as follows:
    Jen o you smell that?!
    Sam:Oh,god!we hit a skunk!
    Lev:Skunk? where? I don't smell any thing.
    Sam:How can you not smell it?!
    Moi:Riding in the jump his nostrils musta' froze!

    It took a while to hose the engine down that night.

    My company is part of a special operations team that goes anywhere in the township or county if needed. We were hanging out at the firehouse one day and over the scanner we heard one of our neighboring depts. respond to a building collapse. So of course we all ran to the engine room and waited for the printout. It was at PetSmart. Well when we got there i looked at the building and it looked to be in tact. However when i got inside there was a whole wall of dog food on the floor. We spent 3 hours that day cleaning it up. It was the strangest call ive ever been on.

    There are a couple calls that I remember that cracked me up at the time. One of them was a few years ago in the winter time, Denver Fire got dispatched for a dive recovery. During the tones the dispatcher was cracking up and said that a guy proposing to his girlfriend in a boat dropped the ring in the lake.
    Another was a few years ago and it was a PD call for an armed robbery at Dairy Queen. Well there are two Dairy Queens that share the same street name and close to the same numbers. Well ironicaly there was a 9-11 hang up from the other one, so on someones error they diverted the units to the 9-11 hang up asumeing the first report was a faulse address. Upon arrival the officers found a bunch of suprised employee's and no robbery. So after much confusion they responded back to the correct Dairy Queen and found the workers spread eagal in the back of the store still counting to a thousand.
