There is a Tac channel so FD and EMS can communicate its 487.4875 PL 85.4. If its actually used, that's another mysteryI listen to doitt but I really don't find it that intresting, does EMS have capabilities to talk to FD? I usually see them on standby at fire scenes but they just stay on their dispatch channel. Is there a Tac channel they use?
I think I've seen it used maybe once or twice in say the last 10 yrs (however long ago it was that the original protocol came out). New protocol is for EMS units to contact us on our primary tactical channel, HT-1, upon arrival at EMS runs. This is used occasionally by us, primarily by the local Rescue Medic unit. Can't speak for it's use citywide. On fire scenes the ranking EMS officer will communicate directly on the HT-1 frequency with the FD IC as needed.There is a Tac channel so FD and EMS can communicate its 487.4875 PL 85.4.
