Anyone figure how to access the archive section,to listen to past alarms? Noticed they also added NYPD SOD/ESU. Its amazing how ESU will get dispatched to a pin first and then(about 2-3 mins) later FDNY will announce the alarm over the air. What a system?

The archives are temporarily down, due to a switch to radioreference.com.  See:

Hope this turns out to be a temporary problem

RDM thats because the call goes through the 911 system (police operator) first and then is dispatched to the FDNY operator

I think all FDNY runs are anounced over the radio about 2 mins after they actually dispatch companies anyways.

It is not the delay in announcing the run that is the problem......PD gets it first & are dispatched before FD units are even notified...they almost always get the jump .....it has always been that way.....they control the system......the public suffers.

There was a delay in Starfire (FDNY Computer) of 90 seconds to 120 seconds after the alarm is released to companies before the info appears at the FDNY radio dispatcher screen unless a company is on the air or failed to acknowledge the response. MDT today increase this problem because the company now gets the response data on their screen.  The other problem over the years when the computer link was established between SPRINT (NYPD) & STARFIRE (FDNY) dispatch system was the coding of calls. All 9-1-1 calls are NOT given to either EMS or the fire branch of FDNY. Only certain codes that are placed into the computer by the 9-1-1 receipt call operator are automatically transferred to both branches services of FDNY dispatchers. The correct info can be found in the text part of the call, & then once it reaches a PD radio dispatcher it might be properly updated.
