• 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:

Sierra-Sacramento Valley EMS Agency is one of many in the state that operates the (usually) UHF med net radio system for their region. Generally, several counties make up the territory. Some agencies license the radios for their users while in others, the counties/cities/hospitals/ambulances license them individually.

S-SV EMS is the local EMS licensing agency for the counties surrounding Sacramento (excluding Sacramento County due to politics). They issue all certificates for EMT-B's and local licenses for EMT-P's. They apparently also license the local mednet radio frequencies (I didn't know that until I saw this post).

Actually they didn't claim responsibility for those freqs until recently. It had fallen to the individual counties who were too apathetic to care. I started stirring up $#!+ on this issue some years ago and I don't know if it was my prodding or some other cause but SSV finally decided to take some action I guess. The system is still unused for the most part although myself and a few technology minded paramedics will use it for hospital contact occasionally as the situation warrants.
