    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:

Allen County does not use station numbers and there is no centralized dispatching. There are two 911 PSAPs in Allen County, one at the Allen County SO and the other at the Lima PD. Any 911 calls originating in the city is automatically routed to LPD, anything in the county and all cellphone calls go to the SO. The ACSO can tone out any department in the county, but does it on a limited basis and only for the agencies that are dispatched by another department.

The following agencies do their own dispatching. Lima FD (done through Lima PD), Shawnee Township FD (done through Shawnee Township PD), Elida FD, Bath FD, Perry FD, and Bluffton FD. I believe Spencerville (Invisible) FD does their own dispatching also, but they are sometimes toned out by the ACSO.

Here are the remaining departments in Allen County and who dispatches for them. Beaverdam-Richland FD (Bath FD), Cairo Monroe FD, (Bath FD), Delphos FD (Van Wert County), Harrod FD (Bath FD), Lafayette-Jackson Twp FD (Perry FD), and Westminster FD (Perry FD). With the exception of Delphos FD, these departments can set their own tones off if someone is in the station and takes the call.

FYI, you can look up departments in Ohio at the following State Fire Marshall's website. Just enter a county it will give you a list. https://www.com.state.oh.us/sfm/fire_apps/fmpr/fd_lookup/

For Greene County, the only ones that did not change were Cedarville Twp and Jefferson Twp. and yes they are using their old numbers for now.

Here's some info on Erie Co...

http://www.radioreference.com/modules.php?name=RR&action=codes&code_id=540

I not 100% sure, but BFD, and KIFD are small, and probably don't have more than one station. Because FTPD communicates on the Lorain Co 154.370 MHz system, I would also guess that they are part of the Lorain Co numbering plan, if there is one. If not, I'd bet on them being in the 3** range.

Other than that, I don't think there's a countywide coordinated fire-station numbering scheme in Erie Co.

Hope this helps! :)
