A combative subject was called in as a Code 40, when the Fire Dept and Medics rushed to the scene they discovered the man was drunk.
Thanks ! wasn't sure...
Rodger, you are terrific !
Can you explain code 40, compared to a 5150.
Thank You for explaining it more.
A code 40 is someone who is drunk and not able to care for themselves. A 5150 is a person who is a danger to themselves or the public due to mental illness. A person who is deemed a 5150 can be involuntarily placed in a facility for psychiatric care. A code 40 can be taken to a sobering center and or jail as is appropriate to their behavior/offense.
Code 40 is a Drunk, 5150 Emotionally unstable subject.
Opps....Sorry about that...
Fire department, Medics several PD units on scene hopefully mellowing out the situation.
Acouple moments later requested PD assist for people causing problems for the responders, reported as a Combative Code 40, Drunk police responded code 3 lights and sirens.
