A DEEP News Release.
DEEP Assisting North Windham Fire Dept with Wildfire in Natchaug State Forest. (9/17/2020)
I don’t believe there is a national forest in Ct. Regardless, the frequency listed as a federal forestry frequency is there and available for use should the need arise. It’s my understanding the feds had assigned frequencies to various states/regions as a matter of course. My guess would be if there ever were a serious wild fire in Ct., where federal assistance were needed, they would bring their own equipment which would include radios. I have no idea who would coordinate its usage but I can say that while I was involved with the old DEP, working as a radio dispatcher, out of what is called “CO” (Central Offices”), located in the state office building in Hartford, we did not have that frequency available to us. And we supported all units within DEP, including forestry, parks and recreation, water and related resources, etc., on the VHF low band system and the conservation officers (game wardens) on their own repeaterized system. There have been instances such as when a second frequency was needed to complete a pair needed to run a repeater system for VFD’s in Ct. and those frequencIt’s were acquired from the portion of the VHF high band set aside for forestry. The FCC allowed for this due to a total inactivity by the federal government’s forestry units in Ct.
159.285 MHz Northeast Fire Compact. I don’t believe anyone locally has that frequency programmed into any radio but as Chris has mentioned, it could be in radios assigned to the NE Fire Compact fire crews... the crew(s) that routinely assist in suppression nationwide. Again, I have to place a caveat on what I state here... it’s been decades since I was dispatching for the old DEP (now DEEP). And things change. That frequency may just be one of many included in a nationwide frequency pool set aside for wildfire suppression. I’ve never heard any comms on it.So what is the Frequency then..... that folks keeping hinting to as a "Federal Forestry Frequency"

On a sad note, the news broadcasts are informing of a Firefighter line-of-duty death associated with the wildfires out west. Prayers and a moment of silence for this lost soul and wishes for all to come home safely.
There are two (2) National forests in New England:
The Green Mountain National Forest in Vermont,
and the White Mountain National Forest in New Hampshire and western Maine.
