Feed Notes

Listening to Albany County FIRE and EMS, along with Highway Patrol and the WyDOT snow plows.  The channel breakdown is as follows:

05-FD-1 = This is the primary channel for communications between dispatch and Fire/EMS units throughout the whole county.

05- Station Alert = Fire and EMS units will be paged on this channel.  You will typically hear a beep then long tone, followed by the dispatcher's voice.

05-CAT-1 = C.A.T. stands for "County Area Talkgroup".  The channel is available to all responders in the county and is used on larger incidents so that multiple agencies can communicate.

WHP-JPH = JPH Troop of the Highway Patrol.  This troop covers Albany, Carbon, and Sweetwater counties and you will hear calls in those areas. 

            WHP-Specific radio traffic: PI= Personal Injury.  "PI wreck on highway XXXXX"

                                                          PD= Property Damage.  "PD wreck on highway XXXXX"

                                                         10-46= Stranded motorist/abandoned vehicle/disabled vehicle

                                                         10-51= Tow truck/wrecker. These are assigned by a list, so you will hear "send lext large 10-51 for XXXX"

                                                         10-52= Ambulance

                                                         10-69= Message received, thank you

                                                         10-79= Fatality

                                                         10-80= Pursuit

                                                         10-95= Arrest made/person in custody

WyDOT District 1 = This is the main dispatch and reporting channel for area state plows.  This is how plows update road conditions for the statewide travel website.  They report conditions using a special code that you can decipher with the below chart.  The "8" numbered list is used to describe road conditions and the "9" list is for weather conditions.  More than one number from each list can be used at any time.

For example, you will hear a plow driver speaking with the dispatch center (T.M.C., Traffic Management Center): "Highway XXXX is an 8-3, 8-5, 9-2, 9-4".  Meaning, the highway they are reporting is slippery with drifted snow, and the weather is snowing with strong winds.  When roads are closed, they will call them "8-6".  With this info you can know current road conditions up to 30 minutes before they are published on the website. 

 

Road                                                             Weather

8-1= Dry                                                        9-1= Favorable

8-2= Wet                                                       9-2= Snowing

8-3= Slippery                                                9-3= Raining

8-4= Slippery in spots                                  9-4= Strong Winds

8-5= Drifted Snow                                        9-5= Fog

8-6= Road closed                                         9-6= Blowing Snow
