• 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:

I was :D

2,500 acres burned before we got it shut down; the BIA, Skiatook, Collinsville Rural, Barnsdall Rural, Avant, Green Country, Hominy, Hominy Ranchers, Country Corner, Sperry, Blackdog, Osage Hills, Rock, Sandsprings, Berryhill, North 48 FD, were all out on Mutual aid. The BIA/Forestry also had one of those neato tanker planes that dumped twice.

It was hot! One Firefighter had to be transported by Skiatook EMS for smoke inhalation & heat exhaustion.

Big thanks to the Red Cross for bringing their "rehab wagon" out; it was a lifesaver. One neat thing was they went back into town and went to local burger joints asking for donations of food; Carl's Jr. gave 400 burgers for the firefighters to eat out there. (On another note, McCrapper told the Red Cross they'd need "atleast two weeks notice to even consider it" :roll: . I think I might write a letter to the editor in the local paper about that )

Well, Phil, next time you're gonna have a monster fire, you better give them 2 weeks notice first. Maybe you should go by there tomorrow and tell them you're going to have a huge fire two weeks from next Friday and they should start getting your order ready. :)

I have been at many disaster sites where there was donated food everywhere. Amazing how the local establishments usually step up to the plate at times like that. I worked at the Murrah Bldg site and there was food everywhere. One of the pizza chains setup a mobile kitchen and you could go up and say "I need 12 pizza's" and they'd hand them to you with a smile on their face. They were hauling pizza's out of there by the car loads for the folks manning the roadblocks on the perimeter.

Those folks are a real blessing at a time like that. Hurrah for Carl's Jr. and the Red Cross!

Amen to that! I wasn't real big on Carls Jr before, but I'd rather eat there over McDonalds now any day! Also, I think I recall a Skiatook Fire Officer saying something like "They better give us 2 weeks notice if they ever have a fire" I know he was just kidding, but still...:D
