Well it has nothing to do with the frequencies but there’s other members on the site that ask similar questions and you guys are from the Chicago area so I figured maybe you would know more about the TV show I’m from Connecticut but do you also happen to know what frequencies they use for the TV show if not no worries I was just curious

Everyone else manages to ask somewhat relevant questions related to scanning .. And the info provided above is old. The original rigs used in the show were CFD spares. They have since been sold and the production company has bought their own rigs and made them look like CFD rigs. Some ambulances, police cars, TV trucks, Taxis Ect. are rented from a company I work for that supplies movie and TV vehicles..
