They are going to be used to communicate tactically.

Maybe to follow NFPA guidelines for fire ground operations like Stamford and Greenwich do.

conducting any fireground communications on a trunked or repeater system is suicide. Waterford is doing the right thing. NFPA1221

The two new tac channels are actually used for Fire-ground communications, They are transmitting analog not Digital audio so that they can have clear onsite communications even in high background noise such as at a fire scene. They put in three remote receiver sites so that Dispatch can monitor the channels and record them. This will also keep on scene communications off the main dispatch and trunk system but they can use the same radios.
