Default Fire tac channels

Just wondering if I should program the individual city fire tac channels for each county or just the county tac channels for example hennipen tac 3 ect.trying to keep my talk groups down to bear minimum.
Thanks in advance

Depends on the approach each county takes. Generally speaking, county wide tacs are your best choice as they will usually patch local tax in (Anoka county approach) in Hennepin county, they generally move any incident to a tac channel at the outset if it seems likely to expand. Ramsey county moves every incident to a tac talkgroup.

Q: Is it Mac compatible?
A: No. Drive your hybrid down to the store and get a real computer.

Hennepin perspective here. Multi agency on fire go to either the H-Fire tacs or the SW FG tacs. But when mutual aid companies depart, the H-fire channel is let go and the rest of the incident will be found locally on truck to truck channels.
