"mild smoke inhalation, caused by burnt baked beans

person just wants checked out,

requests no lights or sirens"

only in jco

I have heard a lot of things sense I became and EMT and working at the FD. But never that one.

The no lights and sirens thing I don't get.

Why did they call 911?

Just a few minutes ago, I heard the following on the sheriff's dept frequency: "Unit 89, Unit 74, respond to Walmart on a report of a 10-10 verbal (argument) between a woman and a seven year old

That must be why the NYPD, FDNY, and FDNY EMS refer to someone as "Being Under", as opposed to "Under Arrest", so we don't get erroneous calls for prisoners whose (alleged) hearts are still beating.

Don't want the neighbors to know there are large emergency, highly reflective vehicles with large diesel engines a couple houses down. Maybe the lights and siren would put them into stealth mode like happens on the road with the critical patient.

This one night while at work the old radio fire up and we hear a "VERY"old female get on and say "This is the ST. **** Home and one of the fireman left his walkie-talkie here and it keeps making lots of noise"

This dept. had a call at the old nuns home earlier and one of the Firefighter/emts left his radio, and every time they were tapped out it bothered the nuns. Just funny.

I recently heard one of our loca fire chiefs state, "That looks Bad!, Chief 50 on the scene with command". He had pulled on scene of a Aircraft Down - Heavy alert. He didn't realize that he had keyed his mic up when he first started speaking. Don't worry, there was no one injured. A plane had lost it's landing gear and had to make a belly landing. Only the pilot was on board.
