Clark County Fire Department releases radio traffic from Oct. 1 shooting

LAS VEGAS - The Clark County Fire Department has released the radio traffic from the night of the shooting at the Route 91 Harvest Music Festival in Las Vegas.

There are three hours of radio traffic from the 1 October shooting. You can hear it in its entirety below.

Clark County Fire Chief Greg Cassell released the following statement:

 
“I am incredibly proud of the men and women of the Clark County Fire Department and the other first responders who were involved in the response to 1 October. I’ve listened to the radio traffic from that evening and the picture that it paints is one of great professionalism. What I was most impressed with was that no one was yelling. When you listen to that radio traffic, you would think it was a mass-casualty drill as opposed to an actual event. Our responders were calm under extreme pressure, even as the extent of the horror from that night became painfully clear. As the number of victims grew at multiple locations, resources were made available and shifted to address the need wherever it was. From an emergency response perspective, the event was very professionally managed and that comes across in the radio traffic. First responders tended to the needs of hundreds of injured. My condolences go out to all those who lost loved ones that night.”
