    We had communication difficulties with that at an actual passenger bus accident. Dispatch came on and reminded everyone to clarify if they wanted a "passenger bus" (to transport uninjured people from the scene) or more actual ambulances.

    It was a reminder to keep in mind the type of call you are on when using lingo!
