08/04/09 57 W - + 12 - 4 Strange Dispatch

It's been a while since we've blogged about CAD curiosities. Imagine the double-take upon hearing a motor-vehicle accident at Sunnybrook and Rock Quarry roads dispatched for Raleigh Engine 26, Eastern Wake Rescue 11, and... Swift Creek Engine 3. How long's that run? Google Maps says 7.5 miles. Raleigh and Eastern Wake responded, and Swift Creek was instructed to disregard.

that would have been a long response for swift creek all the way from tryon rd. in cary. especially with station 12 on poole rd, and station 10 on sanderford. plus garner fire and ems would be a closer response than swift creek.

We get weird rogue recommends from time to time. Often we catch them before they go out. Sometimes we miss it! Last weird one I saw was a few weeks ago was Bayleaf Ladder 25 to Apex on a fire alarm. We overrode it and sent Cary Ladder 5 instead.

Stony Hill was dispatched to Jack Ass Rd. in Knightdale once – about 24 years ago. We responded, even after several radio inquiries as to why. We were finally turned back as we were crossing US-401 at Forestville Rd.

Now, who knows where Jack Ass Rd. is (or was)? Yes it was named as such.

I’ve heard Fairview get dispatched two or three times to a brush fire with New Hope. Off of Old Milburnie Road. They always are told to return to service right after dispatch.

Would you believe Zebulon to Wake Forest on a structure fire, along with Falls, Rolesville, Bay Leaf, Youngsville, and maybe one other in there?

Yep!! It is part of the “Downtown Response Plan” 6 Engines, 2 Ladders, and a Rescue.
