It’s hard to “save” anyone when people call 911 for stuff like constipation all the time.

  1. On my department, we back up fire/ambulance on a lot of calls. From what I see, they are CONSTANTLY being dispatched to deal with unresponsive drunks. More than we are, I think. I’ve remarked more than once that I wondered what the monetary cost is to have two cops, at least 3 EMTs, at least 5 firefighters, all their vehicles, and the requisite ER trip, just to eventually get some down-and-outer to detox for the third time this week.
