Notes

Could you please make mention in the Database for Alamance County, that the following agencies are on VIPER now:

Alamance County Sheriff's Office Alamance County EMS Alamance County Fire Departments Graham Fire Department Graham Police Department Mebane Police Department Haw River Police Department

and this agency is on the Greensboro/Guilford TRS: Elon Campus Police

In other words, all agencies that are not on the Greensboro/Guilford TRS are on VIPER. Also please note that Alamance County EMS and Fire Simulcast on there frequencies in the database. That would be very helpful to new people who come along...when I first got a scanner I was confused as to what Alamance County was on and bought the wrong equipment (i.e. a conventional scanner when I needed digital trunking).

Alamance County EMS uses their freq (156.120) for dispatch only. All you hear is the dispatcher. When an EMS unit calls in all you hear is the dispatcher responding (no simulcast on EMS freq.) The EMS units only talk on VIPER. The Alamance County Fire does simulcast (I.e. you can hear both units and dispatcher).

Swepsonville, Snow Camp, and Eli Whitney fire stations do not dispatch their sub-stations by number. Instead, the district for FIRE calls is divided (these stations only have 1-2 medical vehicles for each station). In Elon's case, however, the district for MEDICAL calls is divided, and both stations respond on fire calls. Snow Camp and Swepsonville also use this system to some extent.
