Good one! I hit L/O on CSPERN almost instinctively now. What a waste of good equipment.
Storms can be fun for monitoring. The repeated spin outs and guard rail violations, rollovers-no injuries and idiots out for a joy ride and inevitable higher insurance rates is phenomenal. Stay home, for God's sake.
Monitoring other agencies can be entertaining, only because we can.
Here is a simplified version of storm related transmissions;
War Room to 27. Are you fixing the electricity?
Roger, we have fixed the electricity and are fixing more electricity. We removed the tag and tied back and tagged the LL7 to 48NE786 - Isolated the ground to MDCT 449 and test reverse polarity Ortho Kilo. Bingo - Hotel Hut hut! Negative potential on the Zulu leg. Flopped neutrals and cleared the ground. Getting hungry, lonely and cold up here.
Received. Continue fixing the electricity. We will contact you if there is more electricity to fix.
HQ to District 2. How is the snow?
District 2 - We have lots of snow. Joey is out back with a ruler. We are plowing it.
Roger District 2 - Continue to apply material and remove the snow.
District 2 - Roger. Continue with plowing. We have all 632 trucks. Well - 631. Vinny called out sick. Denny's authorized?
Roger. We have the 631 with a few contractors with unconventional vehicles equipped with plows. Freddie Moore's Oil Truck looks funny with a plow but doing a great job. Roger on Denny's.
Static............Exit 72 .....wire rope and exit sign..Fung Wah bus on its roof.....
Roger - Plow the snow and we will use the land line to call State Police for the Fung Wah.
EMS - One patient complaining of back pain and 7 refusals.
Dispatch - Roger - Will you be taking patient to a hospital?
EMS - Roger
Dispatch - Received. What hospital?
EMS - Stand by. I'll advise.
EMS - Make that 8 refusals.
Dispatch - Roger, clearing the call. All units available 03:45.
Very fine, Bob. I'm at the light on RT 10. I have about 3 inches, You are 60% quieting here. How did the hip replacement go?
Question: If you are a "non-essential employee", should you be concerned about job security?
