• 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:

who didnt see what merger coming? I am betting we will be seeing more small fire district mergers out in the valley as more and more people come and live out there.

EG CSD fire was not necessarily a "small" department. I'm sort of surprised by the merger, although I don't live in EG (and thus don't pay too much attention). I'm surprised there isn't a serious push to disband the CSD and have Elk Grove provide its own Fire, Parks, etc...

Maybe this is in expectation of housing going in between Galt and EG over the coming years (although there is a lot of open land in the Consumnes River Preserve).

Do you think they will have their own talk groups on the county system, or use Metro dispatch?
Metro Fire was handling dispatching duties for both agencies before they merged, so I would assume that they will continue to do so. They would certainly be odd-man out if they did their own dispatching.

Maybe the CSD thing is just a leftover from before EG was a city? As the city continues to mature perhaps they will start to form their own city fire, parks, etc.?
