The network was set up to call in emergency personnel such as the fire brigade, ambulance, police, Red Cross and KNRM in the event of an incident or other situation where their presence is desired. Although the system is set up with a high degree of reliability, most users have procedures to deal with downtime or overloading of this important system.
P2000 is a digital system that replaced the old analog system. In contrast to C2000, the system is not encrypted, so that messages are received and read by everyone. The P2000 system uses the frequency 169,650 MHz
The messages are similar to text messages and consist of a number of parts that can differ per service and region. Typically, messages contain:
An example: Prio 1 OMS ALARM HOTEL CAFE DE WILDEMAN SCHULPEN 6 LEMM Bet TSLEMMER (18/02/09 11:23:15)
Here the fire brigade of Lemmer with TS Lemmer is sent to the mentioned hotel at the Schulpen for an OMS (Public Reporting System) report with Prio 1. For the fire brigade, Prio 1 means that the vehicle must arrive on the spot as quickly as possible and thereby act as a priority vehicle may be worn. An OMS report arises from the fire alarm system in the building that is connected to the GMS system of the regional fire brigade.
The P2000 pager responds when it receives a message with the capcode programmed in memory. A capcode is roughly similar to a phone number or IP address and identifies the intended recipient. However, the difference is that there can be multiple recipients with the same number. The design of the system is that the necessary units or persons can be alerted without too many people being called.
An example of a list of capcodes of a fire station of the fire brigade in the city of Groningen:
Every city and region has its own way of using the capcodes. Some small corps decide to use only 2 codes (for example, extinguishing group 1 and extinguishing group 2), other corps choose to use only 1 code (corps alarm or barracks alarm). This therefore depends very much on the local corps. For an overview of capcodes, please visit www.capcode.nl . For example, you can also have a website like this for a while www.livep2000.nl track and see which codes are often used in your area.
In a P2000 call, the priority that the monitoring station has attached to this call is usually also stated.
The ambulance services have 3 different priorities:
In addition to the above-mentioned priority rides, the ambulance also has so-called condition creation. An ambulance is requested to go to an area where an ambulance cannot be present within 1 minutes in the case of an A15 report. The VWS trips are driven under A 2.
There are 3 different priorities, which also determine how rescuers can drive to the incident.
In the fire brigade, instead of the prefix “Prio”, there may also be the type of call.
Because the system is used by 25 regions and a number of other services, many different abbreviations are used. For three-letter abbreviations ending in H (COH, DPH), reference is made to the article hooklift.Read more on our P2000 knowledge article
