• 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:

Does anybody have any information as to why Pulsepoint is down for northcomm?

Funny, I was just going to email you and ask the same thing! Looks like just North Comm agencies are down. I hope it's just a glitch.

Is there anyone "in the know" as to why Escondido Fire and Calfire are not part of PulsePoint? I understand each agency has their own agreements and choice if they want to be part of PulsePoint, but I'm looking for a specific reason. For example, HIPAA concerns or incompatible infrastructure.

According to this City of Escondido release, they were/are planning to be part of PulsePoint.

Calfire would be nice too!

I doubt that HIPAA has anything to do with it. HIPAA applies only to a patient’s medical records and other “PHI” (“Protected Health Information”), none of which should be going out over normal fire and PD frequencies, anyway.

I deleted PulsePoint as the constant alerts on my phone became annoying when I’m at work.

Go into the menu and change your alert settings. The app can be set so it will not alert you.

How can I toggle off all PP alerts at once, without having to go into the settings and uncheck and check 20 boxes every time I go to and come home from work?

I have to "force stop" the app to shut it up.

For CalFire I'm going to guess its a funding issue that requires an expenditure that is not approved at the local level.

CAD isn't an issue since South Santa Clara FPD and Morgan Hill contract with CalFire (SCU Morgan Hill)
