Recently I've been hearing Tarrant CO FA dispatching out FD's in NW Tarrant County on individual agency channels and sending them all to "Tarrant County Fire Alarm Channel 1" after they respond. Does anyone have info on this channel?
Talkgroup 7446 on Layer 2 is "TCFA Fire 1". It's been submitted to the database, but not added yet. From my very limited monitoring lately, I believe they're using this new channel as a multi-agency structure fire response channel, instead of Fire IO 8 like they had been doing in recent months. However, I've still heard activity on Fire IO 8 for recent fires. I believe there's a lot of changes taking place, and it's all likely to continue to evolve.

You may have also noticed that Lake Worth and Saginaw units are now referred to as 110 and 114, 214, etc. I imagine the extra leading "1" is to help distinguish Lake Worth Station 10 and Saginaw Station 14, units from Fort Worth's own Station 10 and 14 units.
