Sounds like the long term flooding affecting the Lemmon Valley area north of Reno is now under a local Incident Command Structure.
Command: TM Peavine 158.7450

I've heard some traffic on 156.075. There may be operations on the 800 MHZ system, but I haven't heard any. Lemmon Valley is about 15 miles from me so it may be I'm out of range.

When an interagency incident command team starts managing an incident and the team is organized by a fire fighting team VHF-High is generally the only band used. Quite often flood incidents use more firefighters than any other profession. Such a team can order up radios from the National Incident Radio Support Cache (NIRSC), which uses VHF-High with UHF linking radios. How county deputies interface with VHF radios is something I don't know. The Nevada interoperability plan shows a large number of mountain tops that are equipped cross band patches for various frequencies. Maybe those frequencies and those of the NIRSC should be monitored. I understand an Urban Search and Rescue team from Las Vegas is being used. There are UHF frequencies assigned, on a national basis and maybe scanning those channels would yield some results. Then again, local systems might be enough for this incident.
