• 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:

I hate to post without any major details, but here goes...

Major working fire, Bern Township, PA, in the area of Old Bernville Road and West Leesport Road.

Zone 4 tanker task force has been dispatched, 2 fill sites as of now (0223), Relocating units from Lancaster County and Schuylkill County to cover companies already at the fire. Out of county companies include Lancaster County Tanker 1-1-1 (Adamstown?), Stevens Fire Co., and Deer Lake.

(UPDATE 0242: From Bern Township Command, bulk of fire building has collapsed, still encountering heavy fire condition, exposures on side B are protected and being monitored. Further report to come later. Rehab is on north side of fire building and a canteen is now on scene.)

(UPDATE 0247: From Bern Township Command, chimney is down and Met-Ed reporting power is shut down.)
Any additional details, please add them, thanks.

That is actually Tanker 1-11, Smokestown Fire Co. (on Smokestown Road in East Cocalico Twp. just the other side of Adamstown).
