OK, the Blah-ger has to report this AGAIN.
BEAR CAVES TRANSMITTER SITE IS OUT. AS IN BROKEN - NOT WORKING !
To the FIREMEN, EMS and POLICE in Ligonier and Ligonier Township that means that MOST of their communications with 911 is CUT OFF.
NO FIRE SIREN ACTIVATION, NO PAGERS, NO LOW BAND COMMUNICATIONS plus 800 Mhz is ONLY HALF WORKING.
WTF Mr. Matason… WTF Mr. Brammell ?
At this point I would have to say a MONKEY could do your jobs. In fact the Monkey might be over-qualified in comparison.
And that goes for the Westmoreland County Commissioners AND Staley Communications !!
I was sitting at my desk 3 days ago when Joe Poe from Staley Communications reported back to 911 that everything was repaired. Again, God Bless you Joe and anyone that looks like you.
There was a vehicle accident with multiple patients and entrapment in Ligonier Township at approximately 19:15 hours ( 7:15 PM ) on March 12, 2006 and the FIRE SIRENS did not work, FIRE PAGERS did not activate… Communications was lost in the hills PLUS 800 Mhz was shotty to say the best.
The Fire Departments seems ticked off enough to possible file a complaint however Pat, the 911 dispatcher seemed like it was just another tiny problem, as long as it didn’t affect his lunch break. Then again I doubt it if the Fire Department would complain, after-all the Dispatcher and one of the Fire Chiefs up in the Ligonier Twp. Area are Father / Son.
So why would the Father complain against the Son ?
And if it doesn’t affect Fire Station 87, Mark Brammell’s Fire Station then it doesn’t get TOP PRIORITY !
If I were the ones involved in that accident I would SUE the county because the county HAS BEEN WARNED of the RADIO PROBLEMS and with the communication systems DOWN, valued minutes were added to the response of ALL EMERGENCY VEHICLES.

DRAMATIZATION Ditty, by the Blah-ger
Remember... KISS !
I was sitting here the other day thinking ( can be very dangerous ! ), what would it sound like if the Big Boys in Greensburg happen to need this poor excuse for an Emergency Management Radio Cyst-Em and the Cyst-Em started to act up like it usually does.
For whatever reason, T1 lines going down... transmitter hanging up... digitial echo effect... the digi-crap effect... just plain old system failure - BUT this time the Boys in Greensburg NEED the system and it isn't working, just like it fails all the time when our fine firefighters, EMS and policemen are using it.
So I got out my trusty audio editing programs and a put together a dramatization of exactly that... The Big Boys Needing The Emergency Radio Cyst-Em and the Radio Cyst-Em not really giving a damn.
Give a listen when you get the time, especially if you happen to wear a HAT at the 911 Center.
Nothing else new or should I say nothing has been fixed. 911 made an announcement that 33.70 Mhz Fire is back up however there are still fire stations that are reporting siren and pager problems.
Go figger Uncle Wally. In fact, Joe Poe was the Motorola Tech working at Bear Caves... GOD Bless him and anyone that looks like him.
That's it, the puppy is running me ragged. My brain feels like it is twenty two again but my body feels like a hundred and twenty two ! I'm past the point of it turning black and falling off...
God Save The Queen... wherever he may be !
