Just did an OT shift, the question started a brewing in my head after the day was over is how often are you dispatched for something........only to get on scene and find something TOTALLY different. Im not trying to knock dispatchers.....but sometimes I wonder.
6 of our 8 calls were like that today
Dispatched as: A person fallen. On scene to find: A man in his chair with chest pain......no fall. :confused:
Dispatched as:Overdose : On scene to find: A person CAOX4 who wanted a ride to the hospital cause it was cold.
Dispatched to a unresponsive person. On scene a guy in the hall way of an apartment complex saying his nurse fell down and wont get up. We go in NO ONE, nothing, we tossed the apartment looking--my partner saw a quit on the floor but nothing under it, the guy was a looney toon.
And it just went on from there!!!!!!!
