• 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 heard today Middletown, all call, all 5 first aid squads IN Middletown go to 3rd and final request for an in town call, what happens next if no one is available? do they go mutual aid as in out of town mutual aid after no in town "mutual aid" is available? how long does the process take before a rig finally arrives on scene? I'm an emergency responder too, I'm not trying to pick on anyone here or start a debate/argument, I'm just curious as to how this works.

thanks!

In Morris and Sussex Counties, after three tries for the local EMS, it goes to mutual aid.

They usually don't do a '3rd and final" in Middletown. (Red Bank does though). I've heard them go 9th and 10th request on many occasions. There is a Monoc BLS (818) staged at the Middletown town hall complex Monday through Friday 5am-5pm. It must have already been tied up on a call.
