Ridiculous 911 Calls
Makes you wonder what people are thinking sometimes when they make these calls to 911. :stupidpeople:

:4-looney: Yea, I have gone through different sites and listened to some of those, I tell you, it is hard to believe just what people think 911 really is!

Actually, that dispatcher that made the comment about "you want us to shoot her", the mother did file a complaint and he was fired.
Amazing, she can't handle her 12 year old, but she does something like that. Even though I also thought his comment was off base.

Yeah, I don't know what he was thinking when he said "you want us to shoot her?" It's funny to hear but not appropriate for a 911 dispatcher. I didn't know he got fired, I would have thought he would have gotten reprimanded or written up but I guess since it got major attention they canned him.

Those are friggin' hilarious, love the cop chase in a circle haha. Seriously, though, I think what's scarier to me than the fact that people really make these calls, is in those moments in time, when precious resources are tied up with that crap, what's happening to the people out there who are ACTUALLY HAVING an EMERGENCY???? :doh:

Some people are just clueless or don't have any consideration for others. People who have a real emergency might end up waiting for another 911 call taker or another responding ems unit from a more distant station.

Some people just don't think, now do they.................I work in a State Campsite and have three stories that happened this year! I swear they are all true!

1: A woman comes running up to me and shouts,"I have lost my purse............."How do I call 911"?????????"
I notice her cell phone" On your cell phone mam, dial 911!:
She says" Is it that easy???????????"
I walked away!

2: A woman flags me down and tells me her brother has cut his hand.
I go over to the man who is laying on the ground and notice a bad gash to his palm and three fingers. I sent my colleague to call for an ambulance on the radio.Whilst bandaging his hand I ask him how he did it?
He told me he cut his hand on his table saw. I look at the tent on the site and ask him if he had a tablesaw in his tent?
He tells me no, he cut his hand in his house, then drove 5 miles to where his sister is camping to ask her what he should do?..............This man was in his 50's!

3:Our Supervisor is woken up at 3 in the morning by loud banging and shouting at his front door. When he opens his door, there are two men obviously worse for drink who tell him their friend is bleeding from his leg and they can't stop it, even though they have bandaged it. Fearing the worst(possible ax injury), he gets his wife to call 911 and sets off to their campsite. When he gets therethe third man is sitting at the tabe with his leg bandaged.................with Duct tape! . Eventually he manages to get out of one of them, he had a bad Blackfly bite, scratched it and it started bleeding profusely.............................Eventually when the ambulance arrived the EMT's found out the guy was on blood thinners for a heart condition, they swabbed the wound and put a bandaid on it!

I am a police officer, and you wouldn't believe some of the calls I respond too. Once had a guy call 911, when I get to the house I asked him what's the problem and he tells me that his faucet is dripping. I said try calling a plumber not 911
