My first ever “lights and sirens” call as a student almost two years ago.
Dispatcher: “Medic #, 27D1, possible GSW (gunshot wound), Buffalo Wild Wings.”
We’re all like “Yeah! A good call! woohoo!”…but then…
“Medic # change that to a stabbing…”….alright, still maybe a good call!
“Medic # cancel the call, fork stabbing.”….we all start laughing.
Dispatcher: “Medic ###, 26A1 sick person. Female pt states her breasts are floppier than usual.*pause* and softer…”
**Maybe half an hour goes by as the unit gets to the call and checks on scene…then…**
Medic Unit: “Dispatcher, this is Medic ###, we’re back in service, patient refused transport, problem supported.”
I could not stop laughing. I would be so curious to document a list of the most bizarre calls! People really do call 911 for ANYthing.
