    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.

Hello fellow scanners,

I was just wondering if anyone could help me out with finding active frequencies for Montgomery County for Hazmat or county disaster prepardness. I have the basic fire & ems frequencies in my scanner however I have never heard any hazmat teams on these frequencies. Awhile back on the thruway at exit 28 in fonda/fultonville a tractor trailer leaked a substance that was considered to be dangerous. The hazmat team was called in however I never heard any of there communications on any of the following frequencies.
46.120, 46.220, 46.240, 46.460, 46.500, 155.160, 155.280, 155.340, 155.400 or 155.715

Does anybody know of any active frequencies that are used in Montgomery County during times when hazmat or a major disaster happens. Please let me know. Thanks alot.

They are probably using Nextel.

Haz Mat Response

A lot of times, especially here in the west, the actual Haz-Mat response and clean up is contracted to specialty firms wh ony do this type of work. Most of these guys do not utilize land mobile rado systems because of the large and multi-jurisdictional response areas.
