• 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:

Has the Chicago Fire Dept. changed their response plans for working fires and 2-11's? The reason I ask, is that I was listening today to a 2-11 on Halstead (5th Battalion) and there seemed to be more chiefs assigned to functions I've never heard before (safety, staging) and suppression companies bringing their "specialty" equipment, for example on this particular call: a light wagon (at 2pm in the afternoon?), the rehab truck, and 5-1-5 (Special Ops Battalion) was also assigned. I know there are certain chiefs or positions that can more-or-less 'pick and choose' which runs they go on. I listened to this call from the beginning and did not hear any special requests. Thanks for the help!

Yes they have..it's a whole new world now as far as the responses go. Working fires, still and boxes, extra alarms get a whole new complement of responses. I didn't hear the Light Wagon response, but heard the Rehab unit (5-7-1) respond. Fires that will run into nightfall will get a Light Wagon upon request of the Incident Commander.
