So an EMT gives a non EMT on the squad a scanner/radio (baofeng) just to listen to calls and is told to never talk over it or press any button except for the power/volume knob. Keep in mind that these radios are completely legal to own and obtain, and can be purchased online for $30. It is only when you transmit that you need a license. That non EMT (unlicensed) ends up calling in with it using an unassigned number (therefore identifying himself as an EMT) when he sees an MVA happen in front of him in town, stating that multiple ambulances were needed. Dispatch obviously realizes that the radio calling in is unidentifiable and unregistered, and contacts the squad just to make sure that isn't one of our radios. Who is at fault here? The member who gave the non EMT the radio, or the non EMT himself?
