    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:

Hi all,

This might be an odd request. I'm looking for either a feed or some recordings from a system where Locution CADVoice auto-dispatch is in use, and EFD (Emergency Fire Dispatch) from Priority Dispatch is used. I would find useful some dispatches from such a system which include the use of EFD terminology, either card numbers or the English descriptions - but it has to be from Locution. If anyone has any sources for this, I'd greatly appreciate it. Thanks!

EFD is a method of classifying the incidents into 27 major incident types and over 2300 specific situations. Locution will (should) announce these classifications as part of the dispatch (i.e. "Structure Fire, Residential, People Trapped"). I am looking for examples of Locution delivering these dispatches and how detailed they get.

EDIT: Thanks very much.
