    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:

Hey everyone,

Does anyone use 1st Responder Network for e-mail scanner alerts? I'm looking for a good service to page incidents in north jersey. Do people prefer BNN or 1st Responder? Any others work good?

Thanks.

Hands down BNN is the best for ACCURATE Police, Fire and EMS and the best Weather Coverage around for NWS watches, warnings and alerts, BNN also has a private weather service out of New Jersey providing greater lead time for weather events. Remember BNN pager is a tool not a toy !!

B.N.N. DISPATCHES ALOT MORE PAGES THAN 1ST RESPONDER OR INCIDENT PAGING NEWTORK. THEY ARE RELIABLE WITH 99% OF THERE PAGES AND THEY CORRECT THEM WHEN THEY MAKE A MINOR MISTAKE. DEFINITLY B.N.N. :cool:

While no one service is 100% accurate I was a dispatcher for both at different times and without a doubt BNN is by far the best. 1st Responder is horrible north of Monmouth COunty to BErgen COunty
