This afternoon, Stafford worked a house fire near Shore Dr. and Sandy Ln. The county requested fireboats from several jurisdictions, so I was able to log some new radio IDs.

2361364 Charles Fireboat 10-0-4
2361372 Charles Fireboat 10-0-4
3182421 Fairfax Fireboat 420
329xxxx Prince William Fireboat 512 (didn't get the last four, and SDS100 didn't save radio ID in replay unfortunately)

The Fairfax fireboat called Stafford Fire/Rescue Incident 1 15-Charlie-1, so I added this name to the database.

Yeah I was going to ask about 15C1. I guess it is labeled as the 15 Charlie zone on mutual aid units radios. I was monitoring that incident on the way to work. Hard place to establish a water supply. Needed the boats to draft from Aquia Creek.

Yes, it seems like an odd label for the channel. I would think the channel would just be called 15C (and dispatch would be 15A, etc.). If there is more than one zone for Stafford, I would think they'd be labeled 15, 151, 152, etc., similar to how Fairfax uses 4, 41, 42, etc.

okay this makes scense now since each incident group has 4 channels assigned to it.

15A- Fire Dispatch
15B- Fire Dispatch2
15C1-Incident1
15C2-TAC1B
15C3-TAC1C
15C4-Command1

Of course this is my speculation but seems logical. If each zone has 16 channels then we could probably map at least part of that out.

I am reading a document that makes mention of a "H Zone" on the radios for communication to hospitals (Encrypted)

I am thinking 15 H1 - MWH
15 H2 - Stafford Hosp
15 H3 - SRMC
