• 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:

Reports that a tanker is involved thus flammable, hazardous gas is involved. Fire is "out-of-control" and multiple vehicles have caught fire. 400 is a mess right now. Bradford, Innisfill and Barrie Fire OS. Aurora OPP's got assistance from 407 units and the Toronto Detachment. Other services incl South Simcoe Police and York Regional Police. Highway 400 is closed NB from Highway 9/Davis Drive and SB from Innisfil Beach Rd. Traffic in between being turned around and pushed off ASAP.

Possibly one person deceased.

Update: About an hour in, fire still out of control. Possibly a chain-reaction collision to a traffic hazard ahead. Reminds me of the other Highway 400 incident by Sheppard that happened a few months ago.

Sad, very sad.

Update: CBC reports from OPP;

- Ruptured fuel tank ignited "fireballs" and a "wall of fire"
- Highway 400 may not reopen until Thursday (24h... lengthy closure)

Obvs now everyone can read via the media reports, etc. Won't be posting anymore!

I was only listening in on an app so I don't have much information. OPP handled it over their Aurora/407ETR talkgroup (1OPS38).

Heard some talk from Barrie Fire TAC2 as they were reorganizing trucks, station assignments, etc to assist with this as well.

Hope this helps somewhat! :)
