I know we have the dispatchers thread but I thought it would be worth a few laughs to hear the dumbest things we have heard on the radio period whether it be from a dispatcher or from unit to unit what have you...

That is a good one I was beginning to think that this thread was going to die an untimely death

Well, one day when I was dispatching I sent an Adam unit out to our local favorite hypochondriac hangout that we have named "The tower of power". We normally send units out as either a hot response or cold response, we don't really have any code names for it since we've gone to straight english lingo on the radio. But anyways.... I dispatched them out and forgot to mention if it was a cold or hot response and they asked me on the radio "How do you want us to respond...." I got back on and said "Luke warm...." :rolleyes:

I always like sending them out on "Cold response for a confirmed DOA...." no pun intended.

Then the damn medics do their repeater crap. One will say "Adam 44 at post 2." Ten seconds later.... "Adam 44 at post 2." Always on night shifts....

Another funny thing was an old dispatcher of ours was dispatching out a unit to F AVE, and on the radio he described it as "F as in Pharmacy...." holy hell.....

I mentioned this one in another thread but I feel it's worth bringing up again. I joined the volly fire department in town (yeah, yeah, I know how some of you feel about EMTs [well, future EMT in my case] mixing with fire) and I was hanging out while the chief and some others went on a med assist call. Since I wasn't "officially" a member yet I couldn't ride yet. At any rate, another department got toned out and the dispatcher said it was for someone who "fell out." I couldn't believe a dispatcher actually said that someone "fell out" on the air.

Wonder what he fell out of. :rolleyes:

We call them DFO's. "Done fell out." Or the infamous FDGB. "Fall Down Go Boom".

Pilot: Incident command, this is CareFlite 3.

Fire Idiot: CareFlite 3, this is Engine 59, go ahead.

Pilot: Engine 59, we are three minutes out from your scene. Do you have any landing hazards or obstructions to report?

Fire Idiot: Negative, CareFlite, no hazards or obstructions, just some trees and telephone poles, nothing else.

Believe it or not, this was a PAID, "professional" (using the term very loosely) fire department.

Not the dumbest but darn funny

One of my friends gets called to a frequent’s residence for BS medical, per this patient's usual. Apparently she had been calling 911 all day and complaining of various things and they finally got sick of it & called us to take her to the hospital for med compliance concerns. Either way, they get sent out Priority 4, in an area with Priority 1 (lights & sirens) through 3 (with the flow of traffic). They figured that P4 just meant they could stop & get coffee on the way.
