Anne Arundel Fire Department Information
Public Safety Core Group Vision
The vision is that Anne Arundel County will be the safest large jurisdiction in Maryland; that the citizens will be protected from criminals, fires, medical emergencies and disasters of all types, both natural and man-made; that the citizens will be supported if they are victims of crime, emergencies or disasters; and that the Anne Arundel County Fire Department (AACFD) will assist other jurisdictions in their efforts to improve public safety.
Working Incidents/Feed Alert/Status Updates
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.
FORMAT: [TALKGROUP ALPHA TAG] | [BOX #] | [TYPE] | [LOCATION] | [DETAILS] | [TIME]
SAMPLE FEED ALERT: 1 ECHO | #23-02 | RESCUE | 800 BLK RITCHIE HWY | HVY ENTRAP INV SCHOOL BUS; MULTI VICTIMS; MSP TROOPER RQST | 16:04HRS 05/18/2017
