• 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:

Ran across a couple documents that may help fill in Contra Costa county EMS:

Contra Costa county prehospital care manual (updated as of this month):
http://www.cchealth.org/groups/ems/pdf/phcm.pdf (see page 11 - also touch-tone codes for the various hospitals are in this document)

and

Contra Costa Mass Casualty Incident Draft Plan:
http://www.cchealth.org/groups/ems/pdf/draft_mci_plan.pdf (see page 44-45)

Many of the listed frequencies are already found under various CoCoCo fire and police districts but AMR "Red" is the only EMS channel I currently see in the database. Other than that, these may be new:

out/in (tone)
488.4375/491.4375 (136.5): XCC EMS 1 Sheriff to ambulance
488.9125/491.9125 (136.5): XCC EMS 2 West county paramedic and helicopter
488.6125/491.6125 (136.5): XCC EMS 3 Highway 24 corridor
488.6625/491.6625 (136.5): XCC EMS 4 East/Central county paramedic

American Medical Response
935.6875/896.6875 (none): AMR ambulances "Red" East/Central county
936.7125/897.7125 (none): AMR ambulances "Green" West county

I have not yet verified all of these in my scanner (not in range of Central/East anyway) but I thought I'd post anyway as a starting point for others. One thing I have noticed is that I am hearing AMR dispatches for runs in what I consider West county (Richmond) on AMR "Red" which is listed as East/Central.

Interesting documents. Good read. All the EMS freqs you listed are confimed. I used to work Contra Costa dispatch and we used "EMS 1" and "EMS 2" a lot. Then, they were called "Control 9" and "L19."

AMR only uses the 935.6875 countywide. I've never heard anything on the 936.7125. I think there is a repeater somewhere on Mt. Tam. 936.7125 used to be "ORANGE" which was used in Alameda Co before AMR there went to the ALCO trunked system.
