There was a steady stream of Locution-dispatched fire and EMS calls in Raleigh and Wake County this afternoon, as a band of severe thunderstorms passed through about 4:00 p.m. How long did she go without taking a breath? Here's what the computer-aided dispatch (CAD) screen showed at about 4:14 p.m. That's showing 51 active incidents, with seven pending. Lots of trees down, wires downs, and smells of smoke. Kudos to the crews that have endured rain, wind, and other hazards these afternoons of late. (As well as the telecommunicators that face their own floods of phone calls and radio traffic.)

Is that an iPhone screen shot?

Yeah, how’d you get this?

That’s a screen capture, from a computer running the CAD interface software, as provided by a local chief officer.

Specifically, the PRINT SCREEN button with Windows XP (or later versions) captures a copy of your desktop to the clipboard. ALT + PRINT SCREEN copies the active window. The captured screen can be pasted into a document, e-mail message, etc.

Has anyone ever left work and just wanted to find the closest bar and drink a whole bottle of liquor? I did yesterday after this storm passed. We got it handed to us.
