    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.

They sit outside at the garage and get weathered vs. housing them in a fire station out of the elements. #3 probably had the bay space to house both of them. The reserve ladder is at #12.

I'm not sure which reserve engine are there now since the trucks have been placed in service and a lot of the older reserves were taken out of service and newer engines were moved to reserve status.
