Disagreement Between Rescuers
They ran back and forth to make sure that they had the right equipment. They were all just looking for everybody’s health and welfare. The gorgeous blue and red police vehicles were beginning to flash at the spectators driving down the road. Their vision was not, however, fixed on the car crash. With each other’s input, the two rescue services were arguing.
They Blocked Them In
The highway was as restricted as it has ever been. But now, as well as the ambulance, there were five police vehicles, not to take into account all the traffic that was trying to get through. The incident also involved two EMTs. One tried to stabilize someone who had been harmed, while the other, with absolute contempt, looked at the cops. The cruisers were blocking them inside.
Their Requests Were Ignored
Troy began running to the sergeant to ask his friends to relocate their cruisers with his companion, already placing the harmed person on the stretcher. The officer glanced at the EMT. He looked at his face, which looked like milk was curdling. Finally, after murmuring something under his breath, he informed the other officer to relocate their vehicle. It was something that they decided to overlook.
As Troy was so stunned, he even backed away. Are they really going to obstruct this man and refuse to move their car? The sergeant was not satisfied with his deputy, and the cruiser managed to make a beeline. The door to the cruiser was locked. Troy was growing impatient. He said, “We really need to get out now.” He saw that his member was fully prepared in the ambulance getting ready.
What Could Be The Solution?
Troy began to feel that his patience was getting thin, and his temper began to rise. Under the worst circumstances, EMTs were given the training to remain relaxed, but he never trained for this kind of situation. The police were supposed to be there to assist them in their job, not to impact them negatively. He thought that they could try to push the thing or break its windows. Troy began to notice a tow truck on the other side of the road.
Troy saw a man sitting in the cab of a truck, drinking some water. Maybe he’ll help them? Troy had been thinking. He began running to the tow truck just after the sergeant saw what Troy was thinking and asked the man to assist him. The driver said that, after all, he was called as an additional person. They decided to ask him to get the cruiser off the road immediately.
Asking His Drop Rate
“What is your rate of drop?” Troy asked. He labeled his market value, and the sergeant was only able to grin. Troy also began to smile after he saw the sergeant. But they also had tasks to do, so Troy hurried straight into the ambulance and told his companion all of it. And after that, they started to watch what followed.
As the driver latched the cable across the difficult junction and turned the handle in his cab, they looked at the tractor doing its job. They heard the engine start-up, and when the cruiser’s front wheels picked up the asphalt, it was a loud drone. The truck driver then towed it along the roadside to the grass. Then they saw the cop who belonged to the cruiser run into the cab and ask the driver what he was thinking.
Troy was able to hear the rest of what happened just after the sergeant decided to leave. The rookie officer was not amused by what he was informed of. The cop’s face was both red and furious, and he reprimanded the cab driver for immediately dropping his cruiser. The tow-driver looked down at him and shook his head.
A Hundred Of Dollars
The cab driver eventually answered. He stated, “My drop rate is one-hundred dollars.” “Are you crazy?! Sarg, you’re not going to let him do this, yeah?!” The police officer said to the tow truck driver’s sergeant. The sergeant only stared at him, saying, “It’s legal to move any vehicles that block emergency services.” The rookie cop did not allow this to prevent him from actually attempting to get his vehicle back.
He Paid For It
“I’ll give you forty. That’s it.” The driver leaned against the truck and shook his head. “Nope. Drop fee is a hundred.” “Fifty.” “A hundred. It will be more if I pull it away.” Frustrated but defeated, he sighed and managed to get out of it. The strong-willed guy opened his pocket.
He Was Taught A Lesson
He peeled off his fold for four twenties and placed it on the driver’s hand. The guy hopped into his car when the wheels hit the ground, as well as the hook, and squirted backward. The Sargent finally loosened up and laughed hard. Apparently, this teachable moment was long-awaited.
Like A Boss
The new man was obviously just on the task for a few weeks. He was much like the recruits, an inflating aura of self-importance and cock-of-the-walk mentality. This guy was a little worse and continued to behave as if he was running the house. Another hilarious thing was there, which was kept secret
That Law Does Not Exist
The basis (and “law”) used to move the car was indeed wrong. In any way, there has been no rule. They didn’t need a hundred to pay the young man. Nevertheless, it was worthwhile to hear from his colleagues that the statute would not exclude police officers. What happens then to Troy?
As A Team
They managed to go to the emergency center, and in the crash, the injured people received the treatment they found necessary. He, like his companion, also had a huge, long laugh. It made the day sound a little stressful and reminded them that everybody was a huge family, even some you didn’t even predict.
Troy was so shocked and excited about what transpired in a forum called “Petty Revenge.” he was compelled to share it with Reddit. Once again, the stars had connected with the officer. And the readers enjoyed it. The article has since received hundreds of responses. Many other Redditors were not truly willing to care for the audacity of the rookie cop and were also impressed. Some wanted to tell similar experiences of their own.
They Shared Stories
One user named “Hammerraptor” did write: “Worked for the local FD a few years back as FF/ EMT. Worked a car accident. We parked the ambulance and truck near the scene. The rookie cop decided didn’t like where the ambulance was parked. Decided to get in and move the ambulance about 150- 200 ft away from the scene out of traffic. Any extra equipment we may have needed and emergency transport that may have been necessary were now minutes away.”
The Firefighter And The Cop
He added: “The chief (55yr female) went to fisticuffs with the cop. Just irate. Had to pull her off the cop. Had the police chief on the scene in 5 minutes. A screaming match ensued for about 20 minutes about the PD, not interfering with our operations. The accident victim was fine, and we were cleared off the scene rather quickly. The PD nicely decided to buy the fire department dinner that night. The chief was not reprimanded and became a good story across the dept.”
And afterward, another user wrote about yet another event with firefighters and cops. “When I was a volunteer firefighter for several years, I was trained and cleared to operate all of the department’s apparatuses,” he wrote. “One night, we are dispatched to an accident on the nearby interstate. I was operating our 2nd engine as the first was already on a call,” the user said.
They Raised Voices
“The 3 vehicles involved in the accident blocked the left shoulder and the left of 4 main lanes. As protocol to protect the victims and crew, I placed the engine blocking the 2 left lanes. We don’t move until we are finished with the scene. We haven’t even attended to all of the victims, and a trooper comes up telling me that I need to reposition the engine so that he could open up the 3rd lane of traffic. I explained that I needed to protect the victims and my crew until we leave,” the user stated.
There’s A Note
“That part of the conversation goes back and for a few times until I walked away to assist at the scene. The trooper comes back to me about a minute later, raising his voice, demanding I move the engine. I pointed out that we had equipment spread out in the lanes, and we needed the space to work in. He walked over to one of the medic crew, asking who was the ranking officer on the scene. Two firefighters stood up and pointed at me,” he continued saying.
Much More To Deal With
“The look on the trooper’s face was priceless. As the trooper walked by me, he stated that he WILL be addressing this later. A few minutes later, a rescue chief, and friend of mine, was on the scene, and I explained my situation. He smiled and said that he would take care of it. The trooper left me alone that night,” he said. It can be a little shocking that emergency staff, who experience time-critical conditions, often face demanding individuals.
It Happens A Lot
Although ambulances are correct in almost every situation, simply put, they save lives, you would be shocked to see how many letters they receive are threatening. As a matter of fact, on average, the West Midlands emergency service has been exposed to at least one harassment of its staff every day.
Saving Lives Everywhere
Lee continued, “If you genuinely need to leave your house urgently and we are blocking your access, please come and knock on the door where the emergency is taking place. Sometimes we will be able to move the vehicle, for example, if we are treating a patient, but they do not need both of us there at the time. However, there will be times that we are treating someone experiencing a life-threatening and time-critical emergency and moving our ambulance will not be our priority… you will need to be patient as we try to save someone’s life,” said Lee Brentnall, Paramedic and Ambulance Operations Manager.
