    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:

Does anyone have a list of tone out codes for the various fire departments in Union County NC? Scanner is ordered but would like to set it to tone out for the VFD that covers my actual neighborhood... Thanks in advance...

The tone outs for both Monroe City and Union County fire departments are listed in the Wiki section under

Union County is the data base.

All of Union County uses "A" series Motorola Quick Call II Tones.

Haven't had time to sit down and decode the EMS Tones yet.

I had a listing for them, but since they have migrated to 12 hours shifts the tones I have may have

changed by now.

Before the county signed the ambulance contract over to Atrium Heath

Bakers Fire, Waxhaw Fire, Beaver Lane Fire and UMeck Rescue provided ambulances and the county

provided the Paramedic

U Meck Rescue ran in both Mecklenburg and Union Counties. In Union they were dispatched on 155.280

Mhz. and 462.950 Mhz. (Med 9) in Mecklenburg

The ambulance tones were the same as the fire tones with ambulance being dispatched on state rescue

(155.280 instead of 154.220 Mhz..)

All that has changed now

County Fire is dispatched on 154.220 Mhz.

Monroe Fire is dispatched on 453.125 Mhz

Union Ems is dispatched on 155.400 Mhz.

Then everything is assigned an 800 Mhz. Tac channel for operations.

Look under the Union County Wiki tab and the fire tones should be there.

One other note Providence Fire that has tones listed in the WIki are not correct. Providence Fire has ceased operations.

Wesley Chapel now covers the area the station number is 43 and they use the same tones as there other two stations. Stations 26 & 31.

Hope this helps
