This is the Baltimore City fire department radio traffic of Key bridge collapse



This is the first time I have heard first responder traffic during a significant event. This group always remained calm and professional. It would be awesome if the SC amateur volunteer community (ARES and AUXC ) could train to this level of communications.
This is also the first time I have heard ICS in action. You can follow command being transferred up then out to a unified command . Then break out groups under the unified command off onto their own groups and the groups get assigned talk groups. The only negative was that it appears some of the mutual aid counties/agencies were not setup to talk to Baltimore Fire but they solved that with liaisons.
From my point of view as a radio operator, the communications ( not the ICS aspect, we would not be asked do that) is something I would like to emulate.
