Here's one I don't hear very often...

Estral Beach FD is on a rescue call and asked the ETA of the responding ambulance...

Central responded there were NO ambulances available at this time and that MCA was trying to scramble a unit from 'somewhere' (I couldn't hear it real clear but that is frequently from Toledo or other out of county unit) :( :( :(


That and the long response times is what led to MFD doing their own transports...   When you have a Monopoly on the Transports, and Emergencies - you are going to have this from time to time as they are constantly shuffling units around.

About 4am - while Romulus Fire was on scene of another accident on 94 near 275
someone ran into the truck with red flashinig lights...

This is why Firefighters block a lane with their vehicles - no firefighters were killed - but the driver was lifeflighted... 
brings to mind when cops a few years back arrest a fire captain for not moving the firetruck.

Nice....

If 't's on a Freightliner chassis chances are, we'll fix it.  We got one sitting out back right now from another wreck down in Ohio that I have to take to Omni.

The roads have been pretty 'clear sailing' for the last month so people have forgotten how to drive again!

I listened to the scanner this morning and you could just hear the storm moving north along 23 on the west side of the county as one crash after another was called in. 

Then about a half hour ago it started working it's way north on 75 down by the state line...

just now heard one dispatched at mm 9 in LaSalle!

It usually gets real interesting when it makes it up to the 75-275 split!!!

and right on cue...

a roll over crash on 75 near the 5 mm...   

all 3 lanes are blocked at this time (at least that should slow some of the other drivers down)!!!

We've had some light rain recently...

when my wife went to work at 5ish the roads were dry.

I'm showing 31 degrees on one thermometer and 32 on another...

so things are going to be slippery :o :o :o

Let the dog out about an hour ago.  She stepped on the ramp and slid all the way to the bottom!  We have freezing mist at the moment.

Our dogs were out about 4 before it started raining but they've been asking to go out so I guess I'll have to let them go!!!  We have a ramp for the BRD (her hips have really been bothering her the last year or so) so I know what you mean about watching them slide down!!!

I see cars driving slow by my house and I always wonder why...  I guess this Morning it was because of icy roads.

It sounded like the crazy crashes were slowing down but they just dispatched LaSalle to a two vehicle crash on Dixie in front of Roselawn...   there have been some nasty crashes there over the years :( :( :(

And Ash Twsp. is out on a 'fully involved' mobile home fire in one of the parks... 

the ice can make for some nasty footing trying to work around a fire scene today :o :o :o
