After monitoring Holmdel for the past few weeks, they are paging out on both VHF and 700. But then all fire & EMS communications are taking place on the 700. There is very little use of the VHF. But I would think they'll probably leave the VHF on for mutual aid purposes.

It's more than likely that besides mutual-aid and fallback, the other reason they will continue to maintain VHF is they don't want to replace an entire department of Minitors with another solution. That's been the case many of the municipalities on the NJICS that have maintained a multicast.

Holmdel FD has already issued out new Unication G5 pagers for 700 mhz paging. The exact amount is unknown or if EMS also has received them.

Dang! Nice! That's more than a lot of municipalities have done that quickly.

Finally we have movement with West Caldwell. A total renovation of the dispatch center is underway, and an estimated time for the transition is end of May or beginning of June.

West Caldwell also dispatches for Caldwell , however at this time, only West Caldwell police are moving. Caldwell may move next year. I have no information regarding the fire department yet.
Some minor changes have already been made. Dispatch used to be referenced as “790” and is now being called “Central” .
The VHF channel 158.940, used to alert the West Caldwell fire department and the West Essex first aid squad is patched to the West Essex first aid squad talkgroup 4885.
The plan right now is for 2 talk groups. Dispatch will remain in the clear, and a second will be encrypted. Stay tuned for more info.

I wouldn't expect much to show up on the Stockton site other that maybe the Park Police and NJSP C3-5 if they happen to be in the area.

Picking up TGID 4929 on the Berlin site. The talkgroup is labeled as Bridgeton PD Tac but today I heard 1 transmission that was addressing "Battalion 7" and another that was a dispatch for Squad 7 for a medical call in Bridgeton.

I'm hearing Fanwood FD on Union County FG 8.
That's a good catch. I had the understanding they were going to jump onto Fireground 2 with Scotch Plains since they're essentially one town with two governments anymore. Was it just radio checks or an actual run?

They were testing yesterday then they went to a job around 6pm on Terrill Rd. Today I hear more testing with the county.
