I was able to snag TGID's while they were running through a radio check.

50000 - FD Dispatch 1
50008 - FD Dispatch 2
50016 - FD EMS 3
50024 - FD EMS 4
50032 - FD EMS 5
50040 - Still Alarm 6
50048 - Fire 7
50056 - Fire 8
50064 - Fire 9
50072 - Fire 10
50080 - Fire 11
50088 - Fire 12
50096 - Fire 13
50104 - Reserve 14
50112 - I believe this is an additional Unit-to-Unit TGID that does not use the repeater

I was told that these are the talkgroups that ALL fire departments in Lucas County will use once the transition is complete.

Fire7 - Fire13 are likely the new Fireground1 - Fireground6, one per incident scene?
Reserve 14 is like TF&RD Channel 9 ("hey, you left the overhead door open at the station", type chit-chat?)

Yes, that is correct. ‘Still Alarm 6’ will be for residential and commercial fire alarms, garage fires, and outdoor fires. The rest of the ‘Fire X’ channels are dedicated to structure fires.

Sounds like they’ve been dispatching EMS using “Dispatch 2” (50008 // 11424) today.

Edit: also hearing EMS being dispatched on 50000 // 10168 as well, so perhaps just a matter of testing.

Picking up a new TGID, 10562. It‘s definitely an active or training fireground channel, unable to determine the department yet. Somewhere in Wood County, per radio IDs and TGID sequence.

EDIT: Lake Township fire, training.

PD just started the transition this morning. Caught units checking in on the following TG's:

60008 - NW Dispatch
60016 - SE Dispatch

TPD and new dispatch channels are all temporarily patched over to LCSO OPS-7-X channels.

Lots of patches right now with the transition. Waterville, Whitehouse, Monclova, Richfield, Providence, Toledo and Washington Twp fire talkgroups are patched to Springfield Twp fire talkgroup, which in turn is patched to FD Dispatch 1 (50000). OPS 7-2 is patched to LC Disp 1, which is patched to talkgroup 60000. OPS 7-3 is patched to LC Disp 2, which is patched to talkgroup 60016. OPS 7-8 is patched to 60008. OPS 7-6 is patched to LCSO records (10040). OPS 7-10 is patched to LCJ Booking (10032). OPS 7-10 is patched to OSHP IO (12184). Ops 7-7 is patched to TPD records 2 (12000). OPS 7-11 is patched to OSHP Post 48 (12185). OPS 7-4 is patched to TPD Central. OPS 7-5 is patched to TPD South.

Heard an Air Guard FD Portable key up on talkgroup 50128 yesterday, that TGID falls just outside of the new FD channels so there are probably more out there than were posted above.

TPD South is patched to OPS 7-5. You should be able to have either talkgroup programmed to receive it. I have been monitoring TPD South with no issues.

It must be how your scanner handles patches. Unitrunker shows OPS-7-5 as the source talkgroup on the patch with TPD South and OPS 7-5 is what shows on the call history.

I can monitor TPD South on either talkgroup on my radio.

Must be. I have a uniden bcd325p2 and I listen to traffic on the Ohio turnpike it is divided between east and west and is usually patched together however I only ever pick it up on the west channel for some reason.

The RR database for NWORPSS has been updated with all 'known' new talkgroups. I believe Sylvania was added to the regional system yesterday, leaving only Oregon, Jerusalem, and Maumee to be added yet.

Yeah I figured out TPD south dispatch was patched again from ops 7-5 to ops 9-5
