The Accident... Not...


Priority dispatch with the police at 0851 for "an accident, unknown injuries but multiple occupants..." in the parking lot of a large grocery store- believe or not we have actually had several righteous crashes in this lot, including one fatality.
But not today, today we responded and found a crowd gathered at the scene of a car vs shopping cart collision.
EMS was requested by a concerned citizen who was afraid "things were getting out of hand".
This of course was not relayed by Dispatch... so, from one idiot with a cell phone to another with a headset and here we are...
Your 911 system at work.
Interestingly, per our new departmental policy- we were required to obtain signed refusals- well, that ain't happening...
