• 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:

When the fire department responds to a call and a patient is going to the hospital, I hear for example, "One patient Mt. Clemens General, A.L.S." What does A.L.S. stand for?

And the opposite of that is BLS, or Basic Life Support. ;)
Or if you are from my area they just say No Life Support..

Least by the time the local medics get there. :lol:

LOL, true. However, it's good to know that many agencies now have at least one ALS vehicle these days. At least in my area... ;)

Life Support

I have heard them say "no equipment".
I suppose that means no support at all.

I have been wondering if it meant "don't bring anything special".

no equipment means it a basic unit, basic life support..... could mean they dont have the ALS equipment on that rig or they have no Medic only EMT's on board.....
