Overheard on the Fire Engine

Dispatched to a person who fell off a bicycle, just 15 minutes after being canceled for a similar call at the same location.  The MDT even adds the info “confirmed not same incident as previous call” which more or less guarantees it is.

Officer over control channel: “Control we’re on scene do you have any additional information on this call, there is no one here.”

Control: “Standby 99.”  Then she comes back on and reads, word for word, the MDT information, as if we didn’t have it already.

Officer:”Yeah, there’s no one here wagging us down.  Um, flagging us down.”
