Somerset (MA) Police and Fire operating full-time on Somerset EMA channel

Post by trp »

I've noticed that both Somerset Police and Somerset Fire are operating full-time on the Somerset EMA channel (453.1000 PL 203.5). I first made note of this 2 days ago (June 12th) but it may have started before then.

It's definitely not a case of multi-select or patching being turned on in the dispatch console as the "normal" Somerset Police channel (482.8500 PL 203.5) and the "normal" Somerset Fire channel (483.0000 PL 203.5) both remain totally silent while all Police and Fire communications are occurring on the EMA channel. I confirmed this by simultaneously monitoring the 3 different channels with multiple scanners.

Keep listening to the regular channels as well. Maybe an equipment issue or maybe a system upgrade in progress.

We're peace loving people, we're not hunting trouble, but if trouble should find us, we'll stand up and fight.
