*** U.S. Coast Guard Emergency Rescue Radio Traffic Will Now Be Added To Lincoln County Sheriff, Newport and Lincoln Police ***


News has just been posted that the Congressional delegation from our state of Oregon has successfully passed legislation extending the Coast Guard's helicopter rescue resources (which were scheduled to be decommissioned this coming Monday) for an additional year.


This is wonderful news and a great relief to the families of the fishing industry here in Newport as well as to those who frequent other locations along the Oregon coastline which, without notice, can become a sudden emergency due to unexpected weather conditions and, who's safety and, perhaps, even their life may depend on "minutes" instead of hours.


Since this air support could be considered a complementary service to fire, rescue, EMT, law enforcement or any other public safety conduit requiring such air services, I would like to add, provisionally of course, radio data from Coast Guard rescue operatjons including ship and 'hilo', to the feed stream mix currently as it is delivered presently.


The inclusion would be based on a case-by-case need as just adding Coast Guard traffic permanently to the general feed could saturate it and reduce intelligibility. If and when a sea, coastal or mountain rescue scenario should necessitate air support, Coast Guard rescue operations traffic would be temporarily added to the feeds.


This would very likely, not only add to the effectiveness of general situational awareness by more fully providing comprehensive event information to listeners, but would also add yet another agency's operations that the other public safety people monitoring and, perhaps, be useful as well as productive.


This provider would like to thank, and particularly, Gordon Edwards for permission to add these inclusions.
