    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:

When the Akron FD is dispatched for a fire, usually you here a Battalion respond.
What trucks or equipment does a BAT consist of ?

Thanks!
Bill

Thanks for the responses! The wife asked me about the battalions on fire calls..I got her hooked on listening :lol:
I didn't have a good answer but, as usual, I got it here.

Regards,

For Akron, standard response for:
Reported structure fire - 2 engines, 1 ladder, 2 battalion captains.
First battalion capt. on scene has Command, second is safety officer.
Working fire adds 1 engine, 1 med unit
Fireground radio traffic is assigned the first due battalion capt (if B-9 is first due, fireground radio traffic is assigned B-9 talk group).
Assigned by CAD system, first to arrive is not always first due.
Gets a little confusing if say, B-4 arrives first , but the CAD has assigned talkgroup as B-9.
