• 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:

Columbia Medical Response Codes

I noticed Columbia Fire/EMS Dispatch uses codes to classify the medical response (Alpha, Bravo, Charlie, Delta). I was wondering if anyone here knew them. I'm from Cedar Rapids, Iowa. I often travel to Columbia because my girlfriend lives there. Here, they classify them as hot or cold responses. Also known as routine or emergency responses. As for me, I'm a ham (WB0CID) and ex-college security officer/dispatcher. I participate in Linn County, Iowa ARES as a net control operator. One of my hobbies is scanning. I have an HP-1, BCD396T and XT and BCD996T. I also provide the Cedar Rapids Police Scanner Feed on RadioReference as well. I may move to Columbia at some point. My significant other's career is in the medical field. She's got a pretty good career down there, so I may post on the Missouri Forums more as I have more questions.
