August is turning into a busy month for the firefighters at North Lowestoft Fire Station...
12 shouts so far ranging from the bowling alley fire in Great Yarmouth and exploding cylinders in Long Road, Lowestoft to fires in the open, AFA's and 'male on bus shelter'.
Yep, we've had them all so far.
'Male on bus shelter' did raise the odd eyebrow but that's exactly what we had...
What the tip sheet didn't mention (because no one had told Fire Control) was that there was a young female requiring medical attention at the same location.
So an assistance message was put back requesting an ambulance. I then spent a few minutes on the mobile chatting to Ambulance Control as they asked a few probing medical questions.
I think my medical terminology left a lot to be desired but it certainly made the control operator laugh.
If my medical knowledge is anything to go by I'm not sure how the proposed co-responding will fair!
