Known to EMTs and paramedics, an individual who calls 911 often for an ambulance. The caller may be a mental patient or one who seeks attention or a ride to the hospital where he/she will acquire free food, air-conditioning in the summer, or pain medications. Occasionally, a frequent flyer is an individual who has a serious ongoing medical problem but doesn't take care of him/herself and frequently becomes ill to the point where 911 must be summoned.
Mrs. Jones is one of our frequent fliers; we've responded to her house at least once a shift for the past two months.
Every call we get from the public phone at Main and Oak Street is from a frequent flyer.
