• Effective immediately we will be deleting, without notice, any negative threads or posts that deal with the use of encryption and streaming of scanner audio.

    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

They should do like Oklahoma City, and convince the citizens that their fire department is underfunded... get a tax hike... and then never drive a fire truck over three years old...

Just to let you know, Oklahoma City FD has several frontline engines that are over 11 years old, but they have a lot of nice new equipment also.

Uhhh... that was a captain that works on E3 retiring, not E3. He was retiring after 28 years on the department. E3 still has a few more runs in it. And by the way, E3 is nowhere near 28 years old. :)

You're not talking about Clark Bolding are you? I think his designator is FD3 which is very similar to E3. As far as I know, he's an assistant chief, not captain.

He's my wife's uncle, so I assume I would have heard if he was hanging up his hose.

Nope, was not Clark. It was one of the Engine 3 captains.

Do you know specifically which ones have not been replaced? I gotta say, I like the siren on the new ones. They sound like a fire truck, instead of an ambulance.

The Region 8 Response Hazmat Truck that OCFD has now is pretty dang cool. All white and well equipped light wise. There was some sort of spinning round box on the front that was the air horn/siren i guess...it looked scarrrry loud. Ooooohhh Aaaaaahh!

Didn't get to look on the inside of the truck for ore than a brief second but it looked well equipped radio wise since it is the Hazmat Truck for the entire metro area as laid out in the response region map by Olahoma Office of Emergency Management. The truck is operated as Hazmat 55, I believe, as that is what is on the label in the corner of the windshield as well as what looked like a city vehicle number. The odd thing that most OKC area people will note is that the rig is all white with about an 8" stripe all around the rig instead of the all red typical of OKC.

Oh and the other thing....purchased with Federal grant money and there is one in every response region....pretty cool.
