There really is no plan for the low band freq's that I know of aside from 46.26MHz being the main channel and dispatch, and 33.96MHz being the alternate dispatch for certain FD's. Of the 60 Westchester FD's thirteen use their own private freq's, 18 use the new UHF trunked system, which leaves 29 FD's to utilize 46.26MHz. A couple (2 or 3) do use 46.06MHz for operations. All FD's (and EMS) have access to the trunked system. Many years ago 46.42MHz was planned as an alternate operations channel, while 46.14MHz was for Fire Coordinators to use to reach 60 Control.Can anyone list the low band 60 control frequencies in radio plan order?
Here is a listing of who is using the system.I thought everyone was on the trunking system...considering the county provided one radio per front line vehicle. Who decided not to?
True, there are 58 municipal FD's. There are also several non-municipal FD's. Montrose VA FD is a full time Career FD, Grasslands Fire Brigade is (to the best of my knowledge) a Volunteer Brigade that is staffed 8AM - 3:30PM (according to http://www.westchestergov.com/emergserv/Fire/grasslands.htm), and the Westchester County Airport Fire Crash Crew(?). The above listed agencies have their own apparatus.Just to clarify.
Finally, there are 58 not 60 Fire Departments for Westchester. I nitpick on this only because I do not want people to come to the wrong conclusion that "60 control" is called that because it controls 60 fire departments. I am sure in this group many know the real story.

Yes all true. And I am sure the count is subject to change. The only reason I even nitpicked is because of friend of mine read the number "60" and concluded that is where "60-Control" came from.
I justed wated to prevent a myth from starting.
