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 blue and red police vehicles were starting to flash at the spectators driving down the road. However, their vision was not fixed on the car crash. The two rescue services were arguing with each other about their insights.
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 trying to get through. The incident also involved two EMTs. One attempted to stabilize someone who had been harmed, while the other looked at the cops with absolute contempt. Inside, the cruisers were blocking them.
Their Requests Were Ignored
Troy began running to the sergeant to ask his friends to move their cruisers with his companion, already placing the harmed person on the stretcher. The officer looked 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.
Since Troy was so stunned, he backed away. Will this man really obstruct and refuse to move their vehicle? The sergeant was not pleased with his deputy, and the cruiser managed to make a beeline. They locked the cruiser’s door. Troy grew impatient. He said, “We really need to get out now.” He saw that in the ambulance getting prepared, his member was fully prepared.
What Could Be The Solution?
Troy began to feel that his patience had become thin and that his temper had begun to rise. Under the worst circumstances, EMTs have been trained to remain relaxed, but they have never been trained for this kind of situation. The police were supposed to assist them in their work, not to harm them. He thought they might try to push the thing or break the windows. Troy started 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?” asked Troy. He labeled his market value, and the sergeant could only grin. After seeing the sergeant, Troy also started to smile. But they also had tasks to do, so Troy hurried straight into the ambulance and told his partner about it all. And they began to watch what followed after that.
As the driver latched the cable across the difficult juncture and turned the handle in his cab, they looked at the tractor doing its work. 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 heard the rest of what happened just after the sergeant decided to leave. To say the least, the rookie officer was not amused by what he had been informed of. The cop’s face was both red and angry, and he reprimanded the cab driver for immediately dropping his cruiser. The tow-driver looked at him and shook his head at him.
A Hundred Of Dollars
Eventually, the cab driver 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 muttered to the tow truck driver’s sergeant. The sergeant just stared at him and said, “It’s legal to move any vehicles that block emergency services.” This was not allowed by the rookie cop to actually stop him from trying to get his vehicle back.
He Paid For It
“I’ll give you forty. That’s it.” The driver leaned toward the truck, then shook his head. “Nope. Drop fee is a hundred.” “Fifty.” “A hundred. It will be more if I pull it away.” The strong-willed guy released his wallet, frustrated, but defeated, sighed, and managed to pull it out.
He Was Taught A Lesson
For four twenties, he peeled his fold off and placed it on the driver’s hand. The man jumped into his vehicle and squirted away as the wheels touched the pavement, just as the hook came off. The Sargent eventually loosened himself and laughed hard. Apparently, this teachable moment was long-awaited.
Like A Boss
Obviously, the new man had only been on the assignment for a few weeks. He was just like the rookies, with everyone, an inflating sense of self-importance, and a cock-of-the-walk attitude. This guy was a bit worse and began to act as if he was running the place. Another hilarious thing was there, which was kept private.
That Law Does Not Exist
Indeed, the basis (and “law”) used to move the car was wrong. It was not a rule in any way. They didn’t need a hundred to pay the young man. Nevertheless, it was worthwhile to learn from his superiors that the law does not exempt police officers. What happened then to Troy?
They managed to go to the medical facility, and in the collision, the injured people received the treatment they deemed necessary. He, like his companion, also had a great, long laugh. It made the day feel a little stressful and reminded them that everyone was a big team, even those you didn’t even expect.
Troy was so surprised and delighted by what happened on a thread called “Petty Revenge.” he was forced to share it with Reddit. Once again, the stars had connected with the cop. And the readers loved it. The post has since received tons of replies. Several other Redditors could not truly believe the audacity of the rookie cop and were also impressed. Some decided to share similar stories of their own.
They Shared Stories
One user named “Hammerraptor,” wrote: “Worked for the local FD a few years back as FF/ EMT. I worked in a car accident. We parked the ambulance and truck near the scene. The rookie cop decided they didn’t like where the ambulance was parked. I 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. I 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 then, another user wrote about another incident with firefighters and cops. He wrote, “When I was a volunteer firefighter for several years, I was trained and cleared to operate all of the department’s apparatuses.” The user said, “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.”
They Raised Voices
The user said, “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 left.”
There’s A Note
He continued saying, “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 the ranking officer on the scene. Two firefighters stood up and pointed at me.”
Much More To Deal With
He said, “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.” This may be a bit surprising that rescue workers, who not only encounter time-critical circumstances, also face difficult people.
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 threatening letters they receive. As a matter of fact, on average, the West Midlands ambulance service has experienced at least one harassment of its employees per day.
Saving Lives Everywhere
If you really need to leave your house urgently and block your access, please come and knock at the emergency door. “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,” Lee continued. “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,” Paramedic and Ambulance Operations Manager, Lee Brentnall, pleaded.
