BELIEVE it or not ; These are REAL 911 Calls!

Dispatcher : 9-1-1 What is your emergency?
Caller: I heard what sounded like gunshots coming from the brown
house on the corner.
Dispatcher: Do you have an address?
Caller: No, I have on a blouse and slacks, why?

Dispatcher: 9-1-1 What is your emergency?
Caller : Someone broke into my house and took a bite out of my ham
and cheese sandwich .
Dispatcher : Excuse me?
Caller : I made a ham and cheese sandwich and left it on the kitchen
table and when I came back from the bathroom, someone had
taken a bite out of it.
Dispatcher : Was anything else taken?
Caller : No, but this has happened to me before and I'm sick and tired
of it!

Dispatcher: 9-1-1 What is the nature of your emergency?
Caller: I'm trying to reach nine eleven but my phone doesn't have
an eleven on it.
Dispatcher: This is nine eleven.
Caller: I thought you just said it was nine-one-one
Dispatcher: Yes, ma'am nine-one-one and nine-eleven are the same
thing.
Caller: Honey, I may be old, but I'm not stupid.

My Personal Favorite!!!
Dispatcher: 9-1-1 What's the nature of your emergency?
Caller: My wife is pregnant and her contractions are only two
minutes apart
Dispatcher: Is this her first child?
Caller: No, you idiot! This is her husband!

And the winner is..........
Dispatcher: 9-1-1
Caller: Yeah, I'm having trouble breathing. I'm all out of breath.
Darn....I think I'm going to pass out.
Dispatcher: Sir, where are you calling from?
Caller: I'm at a pay phone. North and Foster.
Dispatcher: ! Sir, an ambulance is on the way. Are you an asthmatic?
Caller: No
Dispatcher: What were you doing before you started having trouble
breathing?
Caller: Running from the Police.

Real 9-1-1 call...Working swing shift one day I answered 9-1-1 to hear a young girl asking me for help....in the background you hear her mother asking her who she was talking to on the phone...the little girl said that she had called 9-1-1 and when asked why....she said that it was because she needed help with her math homework and her mom had taught her to call 9-1-1 when she needed help.....Could not even let her mom be mad at her for that....

One slow nite working mids I got a 911 call from an elderly female (like 90's). She was freaked out because her leg was bleeding. I asked her how it happened and she told me she was shaving! I hope when I'm 90 I'll have someone to shave my legs for!

We got a call from a male who was fighting w/his twin brother who had taken off down the street. We asked for a description and he didn't want to get his brother in trouble so he refused; we then asked what HE looked like and he prattled off everything.

Here's a good one. During Rita hurricane our 911 lines being unindated by people in distress, we get "do you know how long the electricity will be off? I have ice cream in the freezer and its gonna melt." Now that's a 911 call we still talk about it came from a part of our county with real ritzy houses and are the kind of people who call if they have a snake in the yard even though they live in an area named for the woods. Sigh

I heard the actually dispatch call on that one before! It's sooo adorable... Dispatch asked her what she was needing help with and she said "take aways" (subtraction)... it was soooo adorable!

This was sent to me so I don't know how real it is, but it sure is funny:

George Phillips of Meridian, Mississippi was going up to bed when His wife told him that he'd left the light on in the garden shed, which she could see from the bedroom window.

George opened the back door to go turn off the light but saw that there were people in the shed stealing things.

He phoned the police, who asked "Is someone in your house?" and he said "no". Then they said that all patrols were busy, and that he should simply lock his door and an officer would be along when available.

George said, "Okay," hung up, counted to 30, and phoned the police again.

"Hello, I just called you a few seconds ago because there were People in my shed. Well, you don't have to worry about them now cause I've just shot them all." Then he hung up.

Within five minutes three police cars, an Armed Response unit, and an ambulance showed up at the Phillips' residence and caught the Burglars red-handed.

One of the Policemen said to George: "I thought you said that you'd shot them!"

George said, "I thought you said there was nobody available!"

Had a guy call one time to warn an ice age was coming. When asked how he knew it was coming he said he could feel it in his bones. He wanted the phone number for the President. He was given the number to the National Weather Service.

My favorite call I have ever received was from an elderly woman at my last agency. I worked in a small town south of Chicago, and it wasn't one of the best places to live. This poor woman called me right after I started dispaching. She told me she had divorced her husband, and had a restraining order against him after he tried to kill her several times. She told me he was n the premises messing with her gas lines, and she needed assistance. I got my officers going, and fire out. I asked her how her husband got into her house to gain access to the gas lines, and she told me she was renting him the basement because she felt bad that he had no place to go after the order of protection went into force.

Out of all the bizarre calls I have taken, this one just caught me totally gaurd.

This is a good one. Female called from one of the more EXCLUSIVE part of the county, was complaining that the turn signal wasn't turning green for her and she had sat through several light changes. I asked her if she had pulled up to the large white line in the road and she informed me she was several feet back from that. SIGH (how do these people get so much money?) I told her in order to "trip" the light she had to pull closer to white line. I wonder sometimes how I don't laugh out loud in these people's ears.

At my last agency I had a 911 call from a man who stated there was a green monster running up and down the street eating people and we needed to send help quickly. Imagine trying to keep composure on that call. Even better was the agency has a policy you must send a deputy to all calls, let's go with after I dispatched out a got a huge burst of laughter with 10-4 10-59 mixed in it somewhere. Then he called in dispatch to see if I was serious. To make it worst the guy called a couple of times that day because the green monster kept reappearing. The deputy cleared the call and asked me to leave a note for animal control to set traps the next day so we could try and catch him.

Amen, sister.. Just last week we had a call about a susp veh in the neighbors drive way at 3am.
Deputy ariives and runs the tag. It comes back to that neighbor. Nosey enough to look out the window, too lazy to see if it was the neighbors car....
My county is mostly a rural one, with the larger towns populated by people who have moved down from North.
Im beginning to HATE hunting season. "9-11, what is your emergency?" "I just heard soemone shooting a high powered rifle (etc, etc, etc)" Deputy arrives and finds the suspect loading up his deer. no harm, no foul. Deputy makes contact with the complainant who is absolutely incredulous that no one is going to jail over this most heinous incident "back where I come from (etc etc etc") is what the deputy hears (or what I hear when the compl calls back on 911 to complain that the deputy didn't do anything about the "wreckless deer killer.
