Court records said a woman suspected of using a prepaid mobile phone to make up to 48 false calls for help to 911 was a volunteer firefighter. The woman, 44, was a volunteer firefighter in Hudson, according to court records released Monday.

An affidavit said the woman allegedly told investigators that after she made phony suicide and ambulance calls to 911, she listened to authorities' reactions on her department-issued police radio.

She also told investigators that she is depressed and thinks of suicide, according to the affidavits.

She was arrested Friday on suspicion of attempting to influence a public servant, false reporting and resisting arrest.
