Default North County and Arizona Fire & Medical

Does anyone have the complete skinny on the Sun City West/Wittman/North County FPD/Arizona Fire & Medical Authority arrangements?


From what I understand NCFPD is the result of the merger of the SCW Fire Department and Wittman a few years ago. Then sometime after that the AZF&MA was formed between NCFPD and Sun Lakes.


I don't know if NCFPD and Sun Lakes are merging operations or just administrative functions. Are they remaining as separate FD's or not?

Fire and medical both use phoenix fire dispatch. All calls for Arizona Fire and Medical Authority are dispatched by Phoenix (along with a majority of other departments in Maricopa County). If you are using a VHF radio then the main dispatch freq is 154.19000. K6 is the primary tac channel used once the call has been dispatched to a unit in Sun City West. Fire hazard channels are all on A dec and can be accessed with a VHF radio if you are within range of the call. Fire units only switch to A dec when on fireground and in some instances, other major incidents. Fire and medic units both primarily use K dec. If you are using a scanner then you are going to want K1/A1, A6 (154.31000 ) and K6 (Dec-1615, Hex- 64f, Mode-D) to listen in on sun city fire and medical calls.
