Limited information, just started listening. Sounds like 72nd and Federal or Yates area C/G for MVA. NFI ATT

U/D:Correct address is 72nd and Sheridan. Sounds like m/c down. PD req ART and Fire asking for ETA on Flights

U/D 1935-Sounds like this could be a bad one. Multiple requests from PD and Fire for Flight's ETA. Fire advising patient will be hot loaded onto chopper

U/D 1937- Dispatch now advising Flights is using a back-up chopper that does not have CLEER, so Dispatch is having to relay the information via land line. Another story of a chopper landing gone wrong....

A chopper landing gone wrong is a crash or the death of personnel/bystanders. Poor communications is one thing - but the chopper was there, the patient was there, and EMS/police/fire workers all get to go home tonight.

Very true and I am greatful for that, but the communication between choppers and ground units is ridiculous, and, quite frankly, dangerous. If the communication is poor, that could lead to a crash/deaths. I hope this is figured out soon....
