For every SWAT Call out in Monroe County, the Monroe County Communications Truck goes. The Truck roles with a 911 dispatcher trained in field ops, a radio tech from the "Hill" and a Supervisor from the "Hill". Every time the truck goes out it has to have those three or it won't role. Once they get on-scene they go to the IC and find out what he or she wants. 99% of the time for SWAT Operations they go to simplex. The truck will raise up one of its 3 antennas up 20 to 50 feet in the air.
