• 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:

How are the Clark County and Henderson Fire Stations dispatched, what type of notification system is used to alert stations.

You can hear the alert tones on the fire dispatch channels, but I believe the stations are paged independently. So unless they were actively listening to the radio, station 82 would not be woken up at 3am when station 83 was being dispatched to a fallen person. I'm sure for the rural CCFD stations it's the traditional VHF setup with unique PL tones for each station.
