Question Alabama EMA

Good Afternoon all,
I have the BCD436HP I live in Dothan / Houston County what I would like to know is does these frequencies still work ? 453.400 Covington Co.
453.425 Crenshaw Co.
453.725 Houston Co.
460.450 Barbour Co.
The above frequencies are for the Region 2 Areas, I have them in my scanner but do not hear a thing .


Thanks

Good luck.
State ema uses southern Linc.
These are back up freqs.
When I worked at my local ema.
My director used our back up freq. One time.
This was before southern Linc was in use.
We also had a dedicated phone line called n.a.w.s .
That connected us to nws, state trooper post.
Nws used this to give us a lead time when tornado warning were about to be issued . So we could get the
Sirens ready.

Up here, we have 453.425 on all the time in our ops center. Once a week we do a comms check with Marshall Co EMA. Randomly, a state EMA guy will test it out too. Other than that, it doesn't see any use. Backup only.

OK thanks for the info on this, surprised that those frequencies are still listed in the DB. What frequencies are good in the State of Alabama in the DB ?

Most state agencies are southern Linc and or cell
Those freqs listed are back up.
So it's your option if you want to put them in.
That's all we can tell you.

Working at the my ema. I can honestly say that I only used my county's fcc Linc. Freqs once during a snow event.
And doing daily radio checks to various depots.
And calling state eoc once on the uhf freq.

Houston County has several talkgroups on the Dothan system.

No particular frequency. You have to download the Dothan Public Safety System. Talkgoup is 6036.

Unless there is a disaster the only traffic you will here is dispatching Pilcher Ambulance Service in Houston County
