• 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:

Hey! I was just curious...I know they (FDNY) mainly use in-Station alerting...but Do any FDNY FireFighter's carry Minitor V's when they are off the clock? Or say they get a big fire and need to call in off duty guys for example?

Thanks!!!

To answer your question it is NO. If there is a recall there is a system in place where the FDNY personel,FF's and EMS get calls to their contact numbers they provide to the FDNY for recall purposes. They will also be notified by ALL the major news networks in NY about the recall from an agreement with the news networks and the city.
