Anyone catch what actually happened with a Loveland Hazmat call in the area of crossroads blvd? The call seemed to be dispatched to responding units by landline and dispatch was avoiding radio use.
I heard traffic on TG 7&8 but all of the landline privacy made me curious.

Troop is right; if the call involved anything that might detonate, radio silence when approaching the scene is standard procedure. You might see signs warning to shut off 2-way radios, cellphones, etc. when you approach a road construction area where blasting is involved. Perhaps something like this was involved in this incident.

That makes sense. However, I would at least expect to hear the call dispatched over the radio. LPD bomb squad was called but was released soon after arrival. The incident didn't sound too bad at the end ( from what I could hear)

It's been my experience that those loveland fire talkgroups 7 and 8 are only used for training (assuming that is what you mean by refering to TG 7&8 above).

That has been my experience as well with TG's 7 and 8. It might have been a VERY realistic training exercise then.
