01/14/08 54 W - + 19 - 12 Tones, Glorious Tones

Cary dispatches a second structure fire, Swift Creek is paged as mutual aid for the first fire, and Raleigh Engine 8 is sent to a shooting. Three scanners-- yes, only three-- with three sets of tones, plus a pager beeping too. Truly a heavenly noise. Can't imagine why they annoy the wife.

You know, in my younger days I could listen to two mobile scanners, a pocket scanner, and a Minitor all going at the same time and tell you what was going on with all of them. Now, just listening to DISPATCH 1, it all runs together. But then again, back then we only had a small handful of channels to listen to- RFD, CFD, RESCOM, WC Fire 1 & 2.

We were dispatched to both fires in Cary (New Waverly Pl and Jones Franklen Rd). Actually only one fire at China Pearl on Jones Franklin Rd. It was unclear at first if there was one fire or two, so two complete and different assignments were sent.

The fire at China Pearl was a short/arcing emergency exit sign.
