Radio?

An Australian guy on our squad, coolest guy ever, got on the radio after a full crew had been called in.

Headquarters: "Received 553, full crew at 17:15"
553: "10-4, full crew (However, PD hears "full code")"
Headquarters: "Received 553, dispatching ALS, patient has coded."
553: "NEGATIVE HEADQUARTERS FULL CREW FULL CREW!!"
Headquarters: "553 we read you, we have ALS on the way, patient update?"
553: "Headquarters I'm going to give you a call mate."

As a medic was giving dispatch an update on a train v. ped, you could hear someone in the background (I hope non-intentionally) say "Where's the rest of him?".

"Unit A respond to a party having ear wax problems" Also let it be known this call came in during a massive flood with already severely trained resources. .. Yep.

He would have been told quite simply that he would not be getting an ambulance.

Dispatch: "We're trying to get somebody unstuck from the car wash right now."

We have a wheelchair van driver who once announced over the radio: "unit 15 to dispatch, I'm on scene but need to stop and take a leak before I head upstairs [in the hospital]".

He was met with a pause, followed by a sigh and, "thank you, 15..."

Heard this from a coworker interning with a medic responding to an arrest:

BLS on scene - "He's leaning towards cardiac arrest."
ALS responding to scene - "Well lean him the other way!"

"Dispatch, xxxx, we need more vatos to turn off the fire, eh. Fire went woosh!"

I just heard a medic clearing a patient refusal, against medical advice, with a doc on the radio. Best response ever... the doc said "well, it's not like you can knock them over the head and drag them in…"

Seriously. Best response ever.

Had a doc tell me to do this. That'll teach me to call med control for a refusal.

Dispatched for a man who burned his arm: BLS, with ALS on standby.

Driving down the street partner looking for the address: I picked up the radio and told dispatch that we were "on scene with a 2 story house with smoke coming from 2 windows start a box alarm". Dispatched responded "negative Amb ##, you are going to an injured person".

Picked up the mike again, told dispatch that "I was clear on that, but the injured persons house was on fire". Dispatch told me that we weren't going to a house fire.

Picked up mike again, but before I could key it Batt Chief got on the radio and told dispatch that we knew what we were dispatched to, but we were smart enough to know that the house was on fire: and to fill out the box. Dispatch responded to him: "Clear chief, but no one has called in a house fire, so we don't believe them; but are dispatching fire response on your orders"

I think we'd be having a come to Jesus meeting with that dispatcher.
