Car 4 says to dispatch at aprox 2:00am found a dead animal in the road its a cat please call it in to have it removed. Car 5 says to car 4 do you need a second car there? Car 4 responds with Ummmm.... no. The tone of car 4 voice with his response ummmm... no was hilarious. I think car 5 was seriously bored.

"complainant is calling from the ER and is having seizures, can't get up and is requesting an ambulance, he's calling from a dead cell phone"

January 30, 2018. Bridge from Middlesex, Va to Lancaster, Va..... Person on the Norris bridge got out of the car he\she was driving (on the top of bridge) to take a picture of the full moon. Wind blew the drivers door shut and the doors locked while the car was running. Good thing they were using a cell phone to take the pictures. Had to call for help to get a lock-out kit to get back in the car. Incident shut down bridge....Woops!

On the rare occasion I step out of a running vehicle, I roll down my window to prepare for a situation just like this.

Last week I heard two people casually talking about random topcs and their location on the Sheriff's Dept dispatch frequency. They had the right ctcss tones and everything so dispatch heard them and informed them they were on the MCSO frequency and the chatter promptly stopped. I'm sure they were intentionally on the frequency though because they had the repeater input frequency, and ctcss tone.

I've also heard people transmitting on the local PD frequency before.

I've heard medical calls from the parking lot of the hospital before. Seizures and fall victims seem to be what I hear most. I guess the hospital can't help them unless they're inside?

Iíve heard that itís a liability issue, one time many years ago I was leaving the hospital at night, and a man managed to fall down the stairs and was on his side. They had to call an ambulance because it wasnít on their property technically, he was on the sidewalk

the last week i was home, there was an active labor and delivery call at the hospital. Caller had managed to get to the hospital (drove herself) but was in active labor, in her car, and she wasnt sure which parking lot she was in. FD, EMS, University security and hospital staff were all out looking for her. GPS ping was off by about 1/4 mile (probably because she was in her car, and her phone was probably within 50 feet of the cell site on the hospital garage.

It was a race to see who found her first.

Hospital security and a random nurse won. Baby was delivered inside the ER.

Madrabbit, your name jogged my memory. Back in '76, I was on patrol in my '74 Galaxy, about midnight on a late spring Sunday night. Something stopped in front of my cruiser and I immediately called my dispatch (we didn't have 911 back then, that was years later). "25, Dispatch". "Go ahead". (Our city dispatch was Budd C., RIP, and he was our internet. He was a walking encyclopedia and when we needed some kind of weird info, he was our go to person.) Continuing: "Budd, how big do rabbits get?" He answered, "Barry, some rabbits get pretty big, why?" "I have one looking at me over the hood of my cruiser right now". Budd replied, "You must be on Peach Street." "Affirmative," I replied, "How'd you know?" Budd answers, "Mr. XXX raises Himalayan Giants and one of them must have escaped." Did I mention that it was a dark and stormy night with an approaching thunderstorm?

I guess that's the inspiration for the movie, "Night of the Lepus."

Local PD gets some kind of a dispute call involving a mother and daughter, I didn't hear the entire call but had something to do with "Act 64" which is a drug violation. A few seconds later dispatch calls again to advise that the mother may be armed with an iron.

I think the craziest call I heard was last fall. Caller states that he let a young couple who claimed to be broken down use his bathroom after 3 days they are still in there and he thought it was time to call the police. The couple was gone when the cops arrived but there was evidence they were there.
