Default TG27513 Fire drills

For the last half hour I've been hearing Fire Drills on TG27513 from the Cuyahoga P25. TG27513 is listed as Lake County Tac 4 (Common Talkgroups).

The Command radio ID starts with 28 while other responding units radio ID's start with 43. A joint Geauga and Lake County drill?

The unit IDs dont seem to match with any documented depts
.. And the rig identifications are all E-1, E-2, etc ..
No 4 digit rig numbering. Can't tell who it is.

I heard that drill today as well as yesterday. Itís hard to pinpoint the departments because they always use Main street as a location and generic unit numbers. Engine 1-5
Ladder 1-4Ö.. It sounds like there running these drills off a computer program. At point I hear the BC tell everyone to standby the program had to reload.

Concord Twp Fire is hosting a Blue Card simulation lab today:

Blue Card Command Training & B Shifter Overview

The generic streets & apparatus ID's are part of the simulations.

Default TG27513 Fire Drill

Command just announce a 4th alarm, Box 2722. Radio ID 4332584 asked command to repeat the Box #.

Anyone recognize Box 2722 or Radio ID 4332584?

If were lucky when the drill ends the commander might thank the participating department by name.

Lake County MABAS boxes follow this format: xxyz

xx = Department number, same as the apparatus numbering, 27 is Painesville Twp.

y = Zone, departments may have boxes that differ in different parts of their district, usually this matches the station #, so a 2 is probably a box for the PTFD station #2 area.

z = Type of box, here's the table:

0 Target
1 Residential (low)
2 Medium
3 High
4 Specialized Rescue (i.e., high water, dive, ice, fast water, trench, high angle, confined space)
5 Wildland/grass
6 Multi-victim Medical/Fire
7 HazMat
8 Tanker
9 Medical

Put it together and box 2722 is a medium hazard box for Painesville Twp FD station #2.

Thanks, I did hear that last night too and picked up one radio ID and it was 4364 (mentor schools). I did not catch the id of the other half. I was thinking the same thing.

Bud:

These are genaric drills. More than likely for department officer training and or interdepartment trainning.

Street names and unit numbers are for drill only.

These drills are more than likely held at a fire station and not on an actual fire site.

They may use it seems any Lake Channel they wish as approved via Lake County Central. Re: Tac 4...or a trainning channel.

This is why every unit participating in a drill should do what the military, and many civilian agencies do, and that is state in each transmission "This Is An Exercise".

They announced it as a drill at the start of each exercise. If you look at my first post, you'll see that the Title is: TG27513 Fire Drill.

The first drill that I monitored (12:30 to 1:00) had radio ID's from both Lake and Geauga counties. I was curious as to which departments were participating. I was hoping someone from Lake or Geauga might recognize the radio ID's.

kf8yk post's provided great info regarding MABAS boxes, identified Concord Twp Fire as hosting the drill and identified the type of drill a Blue Card simulation.

It's what I like about RR.

I have been camped on this for the last 1 1/2 hours and not heard a peep. All transmissions are still on the analog system. Perhaps during the day I will hear some voice traffic. I hope this is not the end of my scanning days if this ends up like the rest of the P-25 system of 50% garble. The analog system is just great. Whatever happened to "if it ain't broke don't fix it" (smirk).

Bud [or anyone else capable of running Pro96Com/Unitrunker],

Can you see if you are able to pick up the control channels for sites 2-008, 2-020 and 2-021? If you are able, please run Pro96Com / Unitrunker on them and obtain the alternate CCs and site neighbors.

Thanks. I've updated the DB with the information you presented, Bud.

Mike

Wednesday morning and I am hearing radio testing for the Geauga P-25 system. They are using Talkgroup 19539 on CC 855.21250. I don't have Pro96Com or Unitrunker.

19540 is School Bus. Not sure which school system yet. I am guessing at this point it is either WestG or Metzenbaum.

My fears have come true. The system sounds terrible.
