New phraseology I have heard

Hi, Kelsey. I have listened to my local ATC, and I heard some things that I find interesting. "We do have a vehicle on the runway. I will advise you when they lea the runway." Also, I hear "Squawk ident". Does that mean that aircraft can put a Flight Number on it, such as "Flight 123"?

squawk ident is where we hit a button and it allows ATC to find our plane easier its attached to our transponder code. And as for the vehicle well you can't have planes take off or land if there is car on it so thats probably what they are referring to with that.
