That's very likely force of habit. Many departments have become so accustomed to using a single channel for everything that it's difficult for them to get into the habit of switching a working incident to a fireground or tactical channel.I was monitoring, Very odd .. Dispatch and fireground traffic on one talk group. It got real interesting when they had another fire call. And the emergency alert going off every few seconds on E2 captains radio . Thousands of TGs on these new systems and they use ONE ?
well did you read the other posts? said lakewood stay's on their main fire channel when working a fire guess maybe one day we will find their fireground channel but they never used their UHF Fireground before.
