Re: Massive Gas Leak - large scale incident - Lawrence-N Andover-Andover

A friend of mine did a tally of the FD and EMS unit responses. It's approximate because he did it from various news reports. 120 Engines from MA and NH. 44 Ladder companies. More than 25 rehab, HazMat, and other special units. About 40 ambulances from both FD and private services. Boston EMS also s...

Re: Boston Dispatching other cities?

See this is what I get for not listening to it.

I always got enough relevant information about the dispatches via the main "4" channels that I just ignored it.

Re: Boston Dispatching other cities?

They aren't dispatching other cities, when fire alarm enters the incident in the CAD for tracking and moves units accordingly, the voice allocution on Channel 5 announces the move. Been going on for a few years at least. Well I understand they aren't actually dispatching the other cities. What I me...

Boston Dispatching other cities?

How long has the automated Boston Fire Dispatch channel (The 453.6500 one) been dispatching engines to other cities for mutual aid?

I just heard dispatches for Wakefield, Lynn, Malden for the worker in Saugus.

Re: Bridgewater PD (Was: Warwick PD P25)

An update to an update.

Bridgewater State University PD are operating on their old frequency (472.6125) in P25 digital now. NAC is $270h like the 453.8250 was.

453.8250 has been silent the whole time monitoring.

Hartford Fire 800 Dispatch Simulcast?

Today (and Yesterday) while in the Hartford area, I heard what sounded like the Hartford Fire Dispatches (only, no responses, etc) being simulcast over 851.3500 PL 114.8.

I know we have a few members here in the area, is this what I thought it was or something more temporary?

If it happens again, try refreshing the page. Whatever the issue is, it's very temporary and resolves itself quickly.
