    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.

Firefighters in Saline County District #7 now have a new vehicle to fight fires in the future. District #7, which includes I-70 and US 81 highways, have received a new Smeal Firetruck to help in their efforts to combat fires in rural areas.

Randy Weis, who helped set up the sale of the truck to the district, says acquiring the truck was a several-months-long process, but it's worth it, as he says the new truck has improved features. He says the new truck will offer firefighters better response times, especially on the highways, and he adds the new truck offers some bonuses like air conditioning, as well as increased cab space to hold six firefighters.

The old truck, a 1996 Smeal Firetruck, will stay in Saline County, as it was sold to Saline County District #6 firestation in Smolan. The new truck was delivered to District #7 on Wednesday.
