I keep hearing the Cranbrook Fire Department requesting that Fortis Gas attend their scene to help shut off the gas.
Any idea where I should be looking for their radio frequencies?

Thanks

Hi Heidi,

Actually Fortis does exchange quite a bit of their communications via radio.

Over the past few years Fortis has built an extensive NXDN digital trunked radio system throughout the province. I have personally verified and logged many of their repeater sites throughout the southern half of the province. See here;


From looking through the TAFL, it looks like Fortis most likely has a two-channel trunked NXDN trunked site on Mt. Baker.

Not sure if you have a SDR or a scanner capable of receiving NXDN digital, but you will most likely need that capability in order to receive their radio comms.

Take care,
