Default Edgewood Patrol Car Fire

Happening now on Edgewood ISD Primary 462.2625 in San Antonio

Unit: I need fire out here. The unit is smoking from the inside!
Disp: Your patrol unit?!
Unit: (sounding pissed) 10-4
Disp: Fire is en route!
Unit: Step up that fire dept., unit is really catching fire now! Looks like fire is coming from the trunk!
Disp: Fire is still code 3!
Unit: Ow! F***! [Incomp]
Disp: (amused) Be careful! Don't get too close to it!
Unit: (less amused) 10-4 sir.

-Later-

Unit: Uh, looks like everything is pretty much 10-4. The car is destroyed. (Laughing) Go ahead and give me a case number for...whatever you want to call it...
Disp: Will do.

While discovering the wonders of their new Automatic Vehicle Location system, a State Trooper had this conversation with Dispatch:

Dispatch: "I see you are in (town) near Road 2500."

Trooper: "10-4, just passed it."

Dispatch: "Looks like AVL is working today."

Trooper: "Can you turn on the feature that pinpoints the criminals and maps them on my MDC? We spend too much time driving around looking for them."

Dispatch: (Pause to compose himself) "I'll check with IT."

Trooper: "Yea, there's probably an Ap for that..."

A retired deputy told me about some radio traffic from years ago. A deputy was en route to back up a village officer, and the officer told the deputy on the radio that the guy he was after from the bar fight was driving a red Pontiac Grand Prix (except he pronounced "Prix" as it is spelled, not french like (he said Grand Pricks) The deputy laughed and called him back and said "what kind of car was that now.." The officer replied "it's one of them new fancy foreign sports cars....it's red".

Default How do you pronounce that?

While consulting for a rural Illinois Dispatch center, I overheard one of the road deputies call in a licence plate. Since things were running smoothly I continued talking with the supervisor, although I recall hearing the deputy asking if something was a name or description. A moment later a 10-28 printout slid from the printer.

The dispatcher handed it to us and asked us to read it, snickering. The supervisor started laughing uncontrollably.

The registration had come back to a black 2012 Toyota registered to one "LO, HUNG DONG ", age 62, from (major city).

Apologies in advance to the Lo family. I'm sure it is a revered family name but come on, really.

Heard a few years ago after a foot chase, an out of breath officer made this statement. "Huff, huff, huff, must be part greyhound!"

I heard this morning on my EMS channel that there was somebody stuck in a clothes dryer. Guess they were trying to scare somebody that lives in house. The person ended up having to be cut out of dryer.

Just happened: Large industrial complex fire....at least 6 township departments dispatched, and mutual aid from City....after initial dispatch one of the first responding departments lead engines has a stuck mic....FOR 10 MINUTES!

A Volunteer Fireman driving or riding is heard in the background laughing, yelling and getting excited....and then said "This right here's gonna get me hard!"...assuming he was seeing the giant plume of smoke.

Hope no one gets hurt during his enjoyment.

Default Balcones Heights Gem

Just heard on Balcones Heights, TX 152.540:

Female Sgt: XX to XX.
Male Officer 1: Go ahead, Sarge.
Female Sgt: There's a girl out walking in all her glory in front of Grady's.
Male Officer 1: (Laughing) Yeah, keep an eye on her.
(A few minutes pass)
Male Officer 1: I see her. She's currently in front of Taco Cabana.
Female Sgt: Things to do and places to be, huh? She's definitely ready for a night on the town.
Male Officer 1: Yeah. You got eyes on her from that side (Male Officer 2)?
Male Officer 2: Yeah. I see her. Looks like she sees you.
Male Officer 1: Yeah, looks like it.
Male Officer 2: Looks like she's trying to give you the slip. She's northbound again.

Not sure it's funny (I lie, I laughed when I figured out what it was) but on 123.450 today there's been a little gassy traffic on and off.

By "gassy traffic", would you mean of the flatulent variety?

Heard a funny radio car request for back up this morning. An officer was responding to a domestic dispute call where a teenage girl called 911 to report that her father was chasing her boyfriend away from the home and he was really mad.

When the officer was going to the address dispatch said the girl told them both the boyfriend and the father were riding BMX bicycles.

The radio car reported back that he had them in sight and to send back up and possibly EMS because the old man was almost caught up with the kid and they were at least 4 miles from where they started and only about 6 minutes had passed since the call was dispatched LOL

Just came across the Sheriffs Office Disp 1 channel.

SO: "1P*** to dispatch"
disp: "Standby 1P***, a little busy in here right now"
SO: 1P*** to dispatch, thats clear. Let me know when your ready for me, im out on a man with a gun."
The dispatcher then woke up, closed the channel, got backup enroute to the unit and took his traffic.

The SO deputies tone of voice on the response was the best part, too bad i didn't record it.

Edgewood ISD Primary 462.2625 in San Antonio

Unit 1 (Dispatch?): That's a BIG 10-4!
Unit 2: Ok, then Smoky and the Bandit. I'll be 10-8.

(Or something to this effect, the scanner was receiving a bit on the shaky side.)
