All alarms are dispatched on F-5 and initially operate on F-1.Single company responses (including First Responder runs) stay on F-1. Box alarms and multi-company responses either go to F-2 (north end) or F-3

(south end), or F-4 if both F-2 & F-3 are in use.

 

Each radio has the E-911 talk group (included in all city radios) and two event channels (Event A and Event B)

which can be accessed by multiple city agencies.The mutual aid channel can be patched to 33.62/33.70 if requested.The simplex/talk around channel (859.4875) is programmed in all FD radios (F-16, I think).
