I was wondering last night now other Fire Departments are dispatched. Here's an example of us for Fire and EMS.
Fire/or other related call.
KDP-395 to all (Department) home receivers.
Report of a (nature of call) at address or location.
Cross roads between so on and so forth.
Repeats with KPP-395 clear at time given.
KDP-395 to all Department Home Receivers.
ALS or BLS/EMS Request at so and so residence.
Cross roads are between this and that.
For a something or other age male/female with complaint.
Repeats with KDP-395 clear at time given.
Im a 19yr old on the first aid station. As far as the EMS tones go its similar to urs, However as far as the Repeats go it only repeats if its on channel 1,they dont do requesting acknowledgement tho. I guess its pretty much the same.in a sence. Doesnt give time cleared tho. thats the only trick with it. so If u happen to miss the call we dont know what time it was at cause it doesnt give time cleared.
At the station: tones based on call, then the response, depending on whats going out. It could be for a station with an engine truck and ladder, Engine Response, Engine, Medic Response, Engine, Truck Response, Truck, Medic Response, or Station Response. over the radio its: Units, Channel (normally 4B), Box, Reason, Address, then repeated, this time adding any other information and the time.
Pitt County Communications to Red Oak Sta. 51
Need to respond a(n) "nature of call"
Located at "address"
Cross Streets of.........
(If it is a fire)Hydrants located at........
Pitt County clear at (time)
After (3) three minutes if no apparatus has checked enroute dispatch is repeated.
Our Fire and EMS squads have seperate Freqs. and are basically dispatched the same.
If multiple departments are paged out for the same call all those station's tones are dropped then one announcement is given.
We are located in Greenville,NC which is in Pitt County in Eastern North Carolina.
