THE FDNY RADIO OPERATES LOCALLY AND IS "REPEATED" SO EVERYONE IN THE CITY CAN HEAR. WHEN AN FDNY MEMBER WANTS TO TRANSMIT
SENSITIVE INFORMATION TO THE DISPATCHER, HE/SHE REQUESTS THE DISPATCHER TO TURN THE MIXER OFF. THIS DISABLES THE REPEATER
TEMPORARILY SO THE DISPATCHER CAN HEAR THE MESSAGE AND NO ONE ELSE CAN.
FDNY audio is broadcast using streaming MP3 files. The Bravest takes these files and comverts them into the best possible format for many
different web browsers. Because of this the look of the audio player can differ from device to device. The audio streams will automatically
start in most desktop and laptop computers. However, due to rules set By Apple, IOS devices such as IPAD and IPHONE must be started manually.
