Anne Arundel County Fire and EMS
Dispatch, Response, Special Ops, and Box Alarms for Anne Arundel County and Annapolis, MD
This feed is dedicated to scanning the Anne Arundel County Fire Department (AACoFD) talkgroups from the Anne Arundel County Motorola Type II SmartZone trunked system, including special event talkgroups as needed. Alpha tags will be broadcasted; however, due to the analog voice, they may not always appear and/or appear delayed.
|FEED STATUS ALERTS|
12/12/2018 - Research and testing is underway to change feed from a standard scanner to OP25-based software to capture all transmissions for playback even if multiple talkgroups are active to allow for high-call events to hear all communications. Hopefully this can be implemented sometime Q1 2019.

Talkgroups are used quite frequently, so all talkgroups will remain in scan mode, even during regularly dispatched incidents. The only exception is when there is a major incident (e.g. multi-alarm fire), in which a status update will be posted and the talkgroup may be locked on for the duration of the incident.
Abbreviations will be used during status updates to provide as much information as possible with limited characters. The following list will be commonly used abbreviations in status updates.
