• 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:

Blame it on 25 years around fire trucks, but when the FDNY dispatches for a working fire, I can't understand what the dispatcher is saying is available upon request at the end of the transmission. Can someone tell me what information they are saying is available?

I think it's "CIDS" Information, which is a database that contains details about the structure. Someone can correct me if I'm wrong, but I think it's built from information gained during building inspections or past incidents?

Thanks for letting me know Thunderknight and K2hz. If you're on-duty today, be safe out there.

"CIDS information available upon request" (pronounced sids)

In other words, "Let us know if you need the preplan information read over the radio."
