Notes From an Ambulance Call

Just got back from a first responder run.  Enroute, I heard the following radio traffic, which made me smile and may give you an indication of the territory around here:

DISPATCH: Sheriff Deputy #123, please respond to XXX Blank Road, make contact regarding a report of stolen chickens.

DEPUTY #345: Dispatch, be advised, Deputy #123 is unavailable, he’s out chasing cows.

Unrelated, but perhaps of interest, while responding to this call I was also reminded that the reason they put that little “ON/OFF” switch on the controller for your snowplow is to prevent the possibility of your rescue kit tipping off the kid’s car seat and landing on the controller, at which you suddenly find yourself plowing bare asphalt at, oh, too-many-miles-per-hour.
