My agency has fixed and rotary wing craft available in the area, and have assisted VSP in the past, however our sister agency tends to be quicker to respond; they use the prefix "Omaha".
Good point. Now that you mention it, I'm not 100% certain it was VSP.
I was assuming it was due to all the VSP on the scene at the time and they were turning down any SWAT team assistance from Essex and somebody else.
I didn't hear the whole conversation and I didn't hear any Omaha-which I have heard in the past.
Sorry for any confusion.
