Ashland Fire Call - 1310 Silver St - working structure fire - now 3 bldgs totally involved.

Fire first started in the old dance studio which had a fire 2 years ago in the same bldg. Fire has since spread to two other bldgs. One with an apt at the top which is vacant. There has been a partial roof collapse on Bldg 1 Alpha side.

Greenwood O/S. Orginally called in and spotted by Ashland Rescue 3. Ashland Fire 2 is Silver St Command, arrived on foot due to snow drifts. Ashland Fire 1 remains at his residence assisting in command and public service to Wahoo for fire ops, he is unable to leave his residence due to snow drifts as well.

Gretna E2 O/S, Waverly en route, Lincoln Fire en route, Yutan E30 O/S.

Sarpy Co has Gretna Fire Tac 2 patched over to 39.9 at this time.

Omaha Fire declined mutual aid due to the snow and bad wx conditions.

At this time Silver St command is requesting a front loader from the city to help open a wall so they can do more of a defensive fire attack. Also thinking of requesting a crew from Plattsmouth for additional manpower and an aerial unit. Lincoln Fire is sending an aerial from their station at 84th and Holdrege.

Ashland snow plow hit Greenwood Fire's Large Diameter Hose feeding the pumper truck. Now all of the hoses are freezing

...Walking in a winter wonderland.

God, those poors guy out fighting this fire in the storm we are getting. That will make some unforgettable pics of ice once the fire is out. I remember when my folks lived in Maryville MO, a downtown quarter block caught fire in the freezing temps, one picture that remains in my mind, is a firemans bunker coat, standing up by itself because of the ice built up on the coat.

You would think that all the units would go to an 800Mhz mutual aid channel. I just don't understand why Gretna need to patch their channel to 39.9 when all the unit at this fire use 800Mhz.

Its obvious as to why they didn't.

Yutan & Greenwood are on VHF Hi.
Saunders Co is not licensed for any 800MHz M/A TAC Chs.
Ashland, Greenwood normally operate with each other on 39.9.
The listen to Lincoln Fire on that x-band repeater on VHF.
Greenwood also monitors 39.9 with their x-band repeater on VHF.

The real only common freq and format anyone would have would be lowband.

Both use 800 for dispatching. Greenwood only uses VHF for talking to Cass Co.
Saunders Co is not licensed for any 800MHz M/A TAC Chs.
So don't mean they can't use them.
Ashland, Greenwood normally operate with each other on 39.9.
The Ithaca tower is on 39.9 then and not 800.
The listen to Lincoln Fire on that x-band repeater on VHF.
Lincoln also uses 800
Greenwood also monitors 39.9 with their x-band repeater on VHF.
Yes lets use patches and cross band repeaters to talk to someone ten feet away even though we both have the same frequency band in our radios
The real only common freq and format anyone would have would be lowband.
800Mhz:twisted:
Nebaska=39.9 only:lol:
