Clackamas County C-Com posted on FB that they now dispatch for Aurora Fire District. Has anyone heard them on C-Com Ops channels, or are they still on Metcom channels? The PulsePoint App for Aurora FD seems to be populated by Metcom - not C-Com.

Yes, as of July 1st, I have heard them a few times. Haven’t listen enough to see what their primary response system is, especially when they get the ambulance from Woodburn. Not sure if they will switch to the CCOM connection for PulsePoint.

I cant say for sure, but Aurora Fire should be on CCOM radios, and if their medic is out of Woodburn, then the medic 'should' but may not switch to that working channel. There will be a learning curve, as its new still. Add to that the 911 calls could ring into WVCC, METCOM, or CCOM depending on cell towers or landlines.
