I replied to the original post, not the article itself. As the act of replying is not under a precondition, it seems to me all the comments about my reply are just opinion or intolerance of participation. Since this thread is not about my reply how about getting closer to topic now.
The question is more important than the answer!
Hogwash. More than once I picked a radio up to let dispatch know that we were responding to where we were for what we were doing. Judgement like that demands a desk job, not one where the public is at risk.
It was an observation on the typical ignorant response such news stories seem to attract. Not intolerance of ignorance, just a helpful hint to engage the brain BEFORE the fingers wander across the keyboard...

The same thing happened to me, I saw a head on collision in the state over and didn't know the exact address but gave detailed information on where we were but the operator was being rude saying "we can't help you if we don't know the street address" it was so frustrating. But what a coincidence about a block down was a fire station and someone on that side went in for help and they came rushing out to help.

Personally if he had just said my bad and moved on I would have liked that post, instead he tries to get all uppity about it.
