No, the dispatch talkgroup is patched to VHF for fire pagers. The tac channels don't have pagers on them so there's no need for a VHF patch.

Not too sure about Sherburn Co, but in Scott County I was able to monitor the fireground channels on VHF analog using an Icom 910 hooked to a GP 9. At first I wasn't sure until I heard the activity on RR's streaming feed, a couple seconds behind the analog.

Not sure about the usefulness, and I only tried it once about a year ago.

I would assume that they would have the dispatch talkgroup patched to VHF for paging just like other cities/counties do.

The only ones that don't are the big cities like Minneapolis and St Paul. That's because they employ a full staff of full time firefighters, so they aren't paging volunteer/paid on call firefighters to respond to calls.
