Talking Umatilla County

So, I just moved to Hermiston. I am hosting a feed with local public safety agencies and trying to familiarize myself. Does anyone know much about the area they can fill me in on? Ie. Unit designations, 10 codes, 12 codes, really anything. I will be joining a HAM group soon I hope and make some contacts that way, but I love emergency management and prepping and as a former 911 dispatcher and police officer myself I just like to be aware of what is going on around me.

Welcome to Oregon! Good to hear that you want to start a feed for that area. Umatilla and Morrow Counties could use a good radio/scanner feed. (Especially during the brush fire season!) I will PM you some fire info I have for both counties.

Not real familiar with any specific lingo or 10-code or the like that Umatilla County uses. I am still learning more about their UHF Trunked Radio System. I recently established a scanner feed that covers some of the Umatilla County Fire Agencies. I am in Southeast WA and we use all conventional analog VHF.

Thanks for the welcome, I am quickly figuring out some of the info up here. I love it here so far. Nevada wasn't my cup of tea, but the Pacific Northwest is so beautiful and the people so far have been so incredibly friendly. People seem laid back and yet care about the things in life that actually matter.

You probably have figured out the fire district numbering for Umatilla County, but if not, here goes; 2 Digit numbering.

10 Pendleton FD
20 Umatilla County Fire Dist #1 (Hermiston, Stanfield)
30 Echo
40 Umatilla BIA
50 Pilot Rock
60 East Umatilla County Fire (Weston, Athena, Adams)
70 Helix

?Umatilla FD (West, and Power City Sta.)
?Ukiah
?Meacham QRT
?Milton-Freewater City FD
?Milton-Freewater Rural (Eastside, Umapina)

Thanks for that. I hadn't had time to sit and figure too much out yet. We literally just finished unpacking after 3 weeks. I got my scanned up and going about a week and a half ago and have listened a little. I am going tomorrow to a breakfast with our local HAM club so I am hoping to meet some folks there.

I just noticed that there isn't a Morrow County feed so I might use my secondary scanner for that... still debating. I am seriously considering purchasing some old BC-780XLT's and doing a few feeds. I have one digital at home which is all that I am feeding with now, but I have a BC-780CLT that I could feed Morrow County with.

Looks like there is very little digital out this way. Back in the midwest everyone was going to it so I have a handheld plus one in my car, one in my truck and one at home. I am hoping to start a wiki page for this area for unit identifiers and what not.

There might be some digital at the FedEx Freight and UPS DCs there on the I-82/I-84 interchange. Also there's the old Army depot there on the NW side. Not sure if there's still any activity over there. It's now a part of the Oregon Military Department... so that should be a good target for monitoring.
