As of Saturday, March 8th, the 700 MHz "Fire 1" talkgroup (TG 4001) is being simulcast full-time over 470.800. This is a one-way link from 700 to UHF provided by the county so that responders can monitor the Fire 1 TG activity with their UHF pagers. The rebroadcasted audio is preempted by the consoles at 44-Control so that dispatching always has priority on the frequency.

The fire service has not yet officially cut over to 700 MHz from low band, which is why you will only hear a handful of departments operating sporadically at this time. Those departments have chosen to start using 700 MHz voluntarily in order to get used to the new system.

I for one, think this is a great idea, the audio is pretty good too.
