AS THE MEGA HURTS
The way I see it (as the fly said as he stood on the mirror) there were no announcements however a number of new ambulance services have come on line including New Ken and Lower Burrell and some new Fire Stations were heard like Forbes Road and Plopum City. Also heard were MUTUAL AID Ambulance Service (MAAS) based in Greensburg and a few of their ambulances. Heard were Medics 374, 378, 706, and 707.
YOU CAN RUN BUT YOU CAN’T HIDE. Just kidding in a way. Your unique radio ID gives you away each time you press your microphone button.
In fact with this new system all you have to do is turn on your radio and we know you are there !! Turn it off and we know it. You can’t hide !
BIG BROTHER TALKING
GMAN has informed me that Rich Matson, Director of our Westmoreland County Department of Public Safety has sent him NEW information about our system. This information is basically a Sales tool that Motorola has come up with FEATURING our 911 system and some of it’s members.
Like for instance Chief Michael Mastroianni of the Penn Township Police is featured with the K9 Unit. There was a very nice photo and quote included. Also a very nice picture of the Sheriff’s Department. Oh hells bells, if I tell you anymore I’ll give the whole thing away. That information can be seen in it’s entirety on GMan’s Website or you can go directly to that article from a link the Booger Blah-ger of Westmoreland County has posted just for you.
You will need an Adobe Reader to see that file. If you don’t have one, don’t worry.. I sell that for $3,000 on my site HA ! It’s FREE. Just click on the link and everything will be taken care of for you, like I always do.
I must say that it was very nice of Rich to forward that information to GMan, HOWEVER Rich you might ask Mark why he never CALLED ME BACK ? Hmmm, maybe just busy. This Blah-ger has some questions for the Deputy Director or the Director. I’ll be gentle.
I can’t pass this up ! Yesterday Washington Twp. Police Car 5-50 was talking to Vandergrift Police Car 5-11 on TAC 2 and they started to talk about some, well let’s say personal things. Anyhow, Mark and Bob were just flying away when one of them said that they were worried that I would post that stuff on this here BLAH-G. Not so much in those words but this blah-g was mentioned.
You see, this is how it works guys. I posted that much but will not talk about anyone’s personal stuff. No drinking too much, no phone numbers, no family member names or what they do at night, and that stuff like crap. This is NOT soap opera “AS THE MEGA HURTS”. It is about the guys and gals in the field, what they do, funny and serious stuff, and the WESTMORELAND COUNTY SYSTEM !
By the way, the system works fine most of the time. I'm suprised ! Still worried a bit about the backup system, supervisor consoles getting locked up and the supervisors passcode would not unlock it and stuff like that.
I will talk to General Westmoreland about that when he calls.
My goodness County Park Police, FIGHT NICE ! I honestly thought that someone was going to get shot ! Nothing to report that I won't regret later on this subject. Just that I'll give the guys that I heard fighting a bad boogy award. You know who you are !
I was doing some website surfing and came across an excellent site here in Westmoreland County ! Rostraver Central Fire Department has a fantastic site, one worth visiting for everyone. Rated G for Great ! visit: www.rostravercentral.com
The webmaster for that site is listed as jmshawley. He done good !
You don’t think I get all of my wonderful information from within my own brain do you ? My brain is much too small and I lost too many brain cells in my mid 20’s, all of my 30’s and most of my 40’s ! I was a very bad person back then and yelled a lot. You know every time you yell at someone you lose 511 brain cells (unless it’s a telemarketer, then you gain 113 cells). I lost 4,729,305 brain cells yelling ! I don’t yell anymore…. Me your humble Booger Bhah-ger.
Allegheny Township Car 5-62 found a stolen GOLF CART today ! When the golf course was called they didn’t want it back, or at least it seemed like it. Four or five phone calls to the golf course from 911 and they still didn’t want it back.
They finally resolved the issue after 5-62 called the course directly. Two observations. First, I wonder if the person that car 5-62 talked to at the golf course might have put it there to recover later. That would explain why they didn’t want it back. Second, why doesn’t 5-62 play a good golf game. Is it his nasty slice or bad hook that keeps the ball off the fairway ? Practice makes perfect. Fore !
Tis the season to be jolly, I put the tree up right after I got my treat bag ready and my costume on. Boogerette is cooking the turkey as the chi-weinerbooger colors the eggs. We usually go to bed early on Sunday and make sure nothing is in front of the fire place for when Cupid comes down and shoots his lit carrots up in the air as everyone goes ohhhh and ahhhhh ! Happy For What It’s Worth of July !

WILL IT HAPPEN ?
I will make this short tonight as I have to replace the muffler bearings on my car.
Normally 911 has been adding new services in groups on the first day of the month at NOON and several fire and ambulance services are due to join the 800 Mhz Radio System soon, leaving their old dispatch frequencies behind forever.
Because this is the first of the month and NOON is only a few hours away I say “listen”. This Booger is betting 911 will stay true to their game plan and at NOON we should see more services added.
If I am correct you will hear an announcement on your conventional scanner before NOON, say at 11 AM and 11:30 AM with the final announcement around NOON.
If I am not correct you will not hear an announcement on your conventional scanner before NOON, say at 11 AM and 11:30 AM and no final announcement around NOON.
What those conventional frequencies are is unknown but I would guess 33.70 Mhz Fire and 155.160 Mhz Ambulance.
BYOB and happy scannering !
PS: Ligonier Ambulance 706 and Saltsburg Medic 990 and Station 90 are due to switch at any moment, could it be this moment ?
