• 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:

Adam's County PA and Frederick County MD were dispatch to the National Emergency Training Center (FEMA) for a HAZMAT "incident".

can't FEMA clean up their own mess?
Since it can be hard to read satire on the computer, I'm not sure if you were serious or satirical in your comment.

The NETC is a classroom-only environment. There is no on-site fire department, nor are there any physical training grounds. Any events that occured at the NETC would still be overseen by the local jurisdiction, namely Frederick County Fire & Rescue.

I wouldn't post something like that as a joke. true, they may fall under local jurisdiction, but damn.

according to someone else, it was a chlorine leak that was cleaned up quickly.

is this facility near Raven Rock?

As the crow flies, I'd say it's about 12-15 miles from the NETC to Site-R.

The NETC is home to a number of different fire-service items, including the National Fire Academy. Also found there is the National Fallen Firefighter's Memorial, where a national memorial service is held annually. The NFFM is open to the public.

The campus is beautiful ... if you're ever traveling Route 15 near Gettysburg, it's worth a stop.
