    odor of smoke.... 2nd flr apt.

    nothing found when we got there during a 15 minute investigation. looking witht the tic the owner asked what the tic showed so we showed here the heat signitures on the wall outlet and the power strip for the computer. oh! ahhhhh! she then was asked if she noticed the smell at all when using her computer. she replied.....


    "no that should be good, i am not afraid of issues with the computer. it is firewall protected".

    "good night ma'am" and we left as quickly as possible without saying a word.

              Real fun when the den is full of collectible china and the lady of the house realizes that something's gonna get knocked over by one of those galoots wearing bunker pants and heavy boots.
              The weirdest call my old volunteer department ever got has to be when there was a foot of snow on the ground and we get tapped out at 0230 for a "Thirty four year old woman reporting a lump in her breast..."
              You could hear people getting up groaning at the stupidity of some folks when my station's Captain came up on his two way responding "Central,tell this woman to go see her damn doctor in the morning.We are NOT responding to anything but fire calls to that address tonight.Now,get off the house telephone so I can call y'all back on this..."
              Personally,I went back to bed laughing and a few days later when some of us gathered at the station to clean up inside,of course we speculated on what that woman had been doing at 0230 to find a lump in her breasteses.

                We had a call for an "Unconcious 18 year old female..." where half the department's 21 y/o and younger members(no pun intended) almost killed themselves responding to the scene hoping that she was a hottie.
                I was the only one that showed up in an official FD vehicle just as the local ambulance did.Both vehicles had to maneuver around all the POVs on scene.

                A nearby town's FD was dispatched for some shrubbery that was on fire. The dispatcher announced the call literally as "women states her bush is on fire and would like someone to come check it out".

                      Been there done that! Both as the annoying POV and as the annoyed apparatus driver.

                        thanks!

                        we had another call a few days ago. police and ems were called out. the dispatched said "23 yo male, intoxicated, uh. its complicated, time out 21XX"

                        as it turns out, it wasnt exciting. the antisipation of 'what could it be' was exciting.

                          I've got the only powercall that I know of in this area of Ohio at least and people are like WTF is that noise?!? Haha It works great because since people aren't used to the different siren noise, they actually move!

                            Try running a Powercall on "Yelp", and a Whelen Magnum on "Wail", with an intermittent shot from the "Q2b" on the same apparatus at the same time......... Sounds like the whole Box Alarm coming but only one Engine pulls up.........

                              had this since i've been dispatching and didnt actually get to respond...

                              had an old lady call in screaming there had been an accident so i get the location and put in the call and sent it (vehicle accident with injuries) b/c nobody says accident unless its traffic related (except this one time...) and i start trying to find out what happened "was it a car accident, an atv accident, what exactly happened" then she starts saying she thinks he fell... "ma'am can you go down to where it happened" so she runs down to what i found out was a barn, and she starts screaming bloody murder about there being so much blood and she didnt have any idea what happened etc... so i tell her to put her husband on the phone he also tells me that he thinks he fell, but there is a table saw running and there is a ton of blood and he doesnt know where it was coming from and didnt want to touch him to find out. so i finish EMD'ing it and let it roll...

                              come to find out when PD gets there the guy tried to kill himself by putting his face in the table saw and got kicked back off it and was lucid for interview before transport...

                              that was the weirdest thing i've taken so far... nothing to interesting in crash fire rescue from my ff days though...
