I saw an airplane land less then a quarter of a mile east of Hwy 287 between Rhome and Decatur this morning...Is there a private air strip there? I thought he was going to take out a couple of fences! Amazingly, good landing.
There is a private strip just off 287. I by there this morning and they were having some event
all i've heard on the scanner are medical emergences and a few traffic accidents, no one hurt in any of the accidents though
you have to love all the people in scanner land, if it involves you believe me the police, medics or fire dept will let you know,OTHER WISE IT'S NONE OF YOUR BUSINESS!!!!!!!!!
if it's in my county...it's my business! Why else would they make cankers, ta da?
How do you have time to blog while glued to the scanner?
I wanna know why so many people in Wise County are such incredibly terrible drivers?I would force everyone in this county to re-take drivers ed!
the scanner is how i get most of my local news..and i like to hear the keystone yocals at work, they are a bunch of idiots that couldn't catch their ass with both hands!
Not sure where you are coming from 2:53, but we have a scanner, and it darn sure makes us appreciate the hard work our firemen, paramedics and police dispatchers do for our county twenty four hours a day.Thanks, guys and gals!
2:53- These words he speaks are true, We are all just humanary stew.

I'll be glad when school starts back up, that way all these dang kids will have other stuff to do besides junk up the blog comment board. Man, I sure hope it's kids, otherwise this county is in big trouble!
well, i think it was a call to let the man out of his car, cause he called and said he was locked inside but who knows!! you know how these folks in wise county are?!!! never never know ....
When the Rhome Police/City Councel/Politicians stir their pot, it is really easy to smell. Pleasant No, Easy, Yes.
To anonymous 2:53...EXCELLENT POINT!****************************************To anonymous 6:57...Police, paramedics, EMTs and dispatchers in Wise County are PAID because it is their JOB. As for VOLUNTEER fire fighters, I am sure they do not care whether or not someone is listening to the scanner to make sure they are doing a good job.
We went throught Boyd on our way to Bridgeport for a reunion and going they were cleaning up a wreck at 114/730. On the way back a bad wreck on 114. Its the heat getting to everyone.
Why do I hear Banjo's playing on the scanner whenever the cops are all stured up over somethin or somethin.
Speaking of fires I drove the other day through Paradise City where the grass is green and the weeds are shoulder deep- wait that's not how the song goes! Will they ever learn?I weep for the species
To the chief and 2:53, Both of you are so negative,chief, for you to be so intelligent, did it ever occur to you that scanners can save property and lives? When we had the big fire in the spring, I was able to call some people that I knew in the area that were not at home to let them know that they were in the line of the fire, some were able act before the fire got to them. I was able to get 2 pick-up loads of belongings out of a ladys house before it hit. During the big snow, I was hearing about how many people were in the ditches, all wreckers, ambulances and police personel were overwhelmed. I closed my business and took 2 employees and a 4wd p/u and working with the S.O. on priority calls we pulled a young lady with a 6wk.old baby with no milk and no heater out of the ditch and found a place for her to stay until conditions improved. An elderly female with health problems off in a ditch with no heat. There were many others that we were able to get back on the road also. Sometimes during a very hectic holiday, emergency personel gets spread very, very thin(Wise County covers over 900 sq. mi.) Two or three years ago there was a very serious car accident on a remote county road at the crest of a hill and only 1 deputy was able to respond quickly and he was screaming for traffic control because vehicles were popping over the hill at very dangerous speeds nearly ramming into the previous accident, since I lived close to the scene I was there within 2 to 3 minutes to slow the traffic down before they got to the hill. On a very, very cold night a lady with 3 children had a blow out on 287 at 2 AM, no money, no spare and nothing open to even get a tire, I called the S.O. to find out what kind of vehicle she had and I just happened to have a vehicle that used the same type of wheel so I went and put it on for her. I could go on for quite a while about how a person with a scanner can be helpful if they want to be. I do not use mine to be nosy as you negative thinkers do. It's nice to know where our weather watchers are, there's nothing like hearing the sound of baseball size hail coming through the mic of a patrolman's radio as he's reporting it to the dispatcher his location and that his unit is getting beat to hell and he has nothing to get under. The spotting of funnel clouds. A crime that might have been committed in your area with a vehicle discription and on and on!!. Think about it!!.
It's not the heat, it's the humidity- Haw haw
I'm going to go out on a limb and put "scanner junkies" into two categories......1) Elderly folk whose kids have bought them a scanner to keep them informed and part-time entertainment.Or2) The town gossip who can't wait to tell as many people about the wreck that killed two infants when their car was t-boned by a rock truck.PS. "dognut licker"???CLASSIC!
To anonymous 3:55...Clearly, you are in a tiny minority of scanner trolls who can and will actually do something to ASSIST people impacted by the events being broadcast on a scanner. In the 10 years Hubby mzchief was on the RAB VFD he never once encountered a scanner troll who showed up at an emergency to do anything but rubberneck.Incidentally, If you have indeed rushed to the rescue of so many hapless souls in Wise County I cannot help but wonder, why has there not been a single reference in the Messenger of you rushing around the county, faster than a speeding bullet, in your cape and tights?
Hey 3:55,1) If you are in the line of an oncoming grass fire...a) Inhale through nose....you'll smell the smoke.b) Evacuate house2) If there is a blizzard coming...a) watch the weather on channel 4. They'll will give you uber time to put the chains on your truck/go witness a twister/watch your truck get pummelled by trampoline sized hail stones.
Chief, I did'nt have to break the speed limit for any of the incidents mentioned. I don't do it for publicity, I don't talk to the cops unless I have to, I don't hang around and rubberneck and I'm gone before Joe Duty makes the scene!! Just like Superman,.........except I'm the "Ivisible Man". LOL!!!
Common sense,from 3:55,1) If you are in the line of an oncoming grass fire. THAT I'M 25 MILES AWAY FROM??a) Inhale through nose....you'll smell the smoke. IF I'M IN FORT WORTH, I CAN ALWAYS SMELL A GRASSFIRE IN WISE COUNTY!!b) Evacuate house--- HOW CAN I EVACUATE HOUSE WHEN I'M NOT THERE??2) If there is a blizzard coming. watch the weather on channel 4. -- JUST LIKE ALL THE DUMB ASSES THAT WAS WATCHING FOX 4 MARCH 06'08?? They'll will give you uber time to put the chains on your truck/go witness a twister/watch your truck get pummelled..by trampoline sized hail stones. -- I PROBABLY COULD IF I DID'NT HAVE A JOB AND STAYED HOME LAYING ON MY FAT ASS WATCHING CHANNEL 4 ALL DAY??
I'm going to go out on a limb and say that 3:55/10:53.......Is a volunteer firefighter somewhere.... drives a small pick-up with 14 antennas whippin' in the wind.... hangs out with local ems/firefighters/PD even though they really don't want him around....somehow obtained GED....delivers pizza....lived with mom until 27 yoa....listens to the ol' scanner in hopes of having a reason to run down the road with the flashers on....had a girlfriend once and still has hopes of marrying her even though she has two kids from two other men.
3:55 you are clearly the exception to the majority of scanner listeners as a volunteer fire chief and dispatcher for wise county the things you do for your fellow person is great, some times the person willing to help others and not get awarded for it are the true heros of the world as for another post yes the ploice,deputies,medics and dispatchers are being paid for their job but most of these men and women are citizens in wise county and care very much that we are doing a good job protecting the good citizens of the county as for the volunteer firefighters we are the men and women putting it all on the line to provide you with the best protection possible.to 11:25 pm yes there are some vol. firefighters in this county who fit your decription but they are the few.
TO LIMBMAN....I'm going to go out on a limb and say that 3:55/10:53.... LOL!!YOU NEED TO GET YOURSELF A "BRANCH" MANAGER!!!...Is a volunteer firefighter somewhere.NEVER HAVE BEEN!!!... drives a small pick-up with 14 antennas whippin' in the wind.CHEV.4WD, TUNDRA 4WD, ONLY THE FACTORY ANTENNA.... hangs out with local ems/firefighters/PD even though they really don't want him around. NEVER HAVE, NEVER WILL!!...somehow obtained GED. YOU CAN'T BE A CERTAIN TYPE OF ENGINEER WITH A GED....delivers pizza.DON'T EVEN EAT THEM!! NEVER DELIVERED ONE EITHER!!...lived with mom until 27 yoa.L0ST MY MOM WHEN I WAS 6 YRS.OLD...listens to the ol' scanner in hopes of having a reason to run down the road with the flashers on. FLASHERS ONLY WHEN PARKED AT CERTAIN SITUATIONS....had a girlfriend once and still has hopes of marrying her even though she has two kids from two other men. WELL YOU'RE RIGHT ON THIS ONE!!!!! I STILL HAVE THE GIRLFRIEND,........ I'M JUST LETTING YOU SUPPORT HER!!
11:25 thats funny...fake dole King...
all these anti-scanner idiots do sound like some kind of communist cops, and i'll bet everyone of those dognut lickers live on some kind of government check. in other words paid by taxpayers..typical thinking by these COMMUNIST GOVERNMENT PAID DOGNUT LICKERS..!!!!
12:02 AM Way tooooo funny!!!!
12:02 Way tooooo defensive!!!!
