Looking at the aerials coming in, the islanders are going to need a lot of help.
Trees down and home damage west of route 50. Major transmission lines are damaged or down along
Main Street on the east side of 50 near shopping center rd.

I'm listening to the First system, and Queen Anne, I only get Law Dispatch.
No traffic on Upper Eastern shore.

Any leads on public works for Queen Anne County?

Anne Arundel had a ton of resources respond to the Tornado in Queen Anne. Atleast 2 dozen units responded (Engines, Special Ops, ATV's, Gators, MCCU-1, Coffee Wagon, etc.).

It appears only some of AA have FiRST Radios. They used the Anne Arundel County for much of the response (Juliet - Base, Golf - Operations).

AA Fire Alarm really did a great job with coordinating resources, making contacts for units on scene.

Going through recordings....

FiRST:
QA Fire Dispatch
QA Fire Admin
QA Fire Tac 3, 4, 5
QA Law Dispatch
QA Parks & Rec
QA Roads
MSP S Centreville Tac (Encrypted)
MDE Ops 4
MEMA Central 2
NRP Area 2

8 Tac 94 was used. Seemed to be patched to something.
