What are the volly departments doing?
from what i understood all of the volunteer fd radios will be programmed the same so if you are on a call your radio battery goes dead or something you can grab another radio even from another vfd in the county and it will be programmed the same as yours we all from what i was told by ema will share the dispatch and 4 fire ground channels and incident channels i don;t know if tellico,vonore, madisonville, or sweetwater cities will or not

I don't know if sweetwater will go over.

You answered it. I didn't know if they were going to be included in the new system. I had heard EMA had (has?) all the radios, but I wasn't certain if there were enough to outfit every volunteer firefighter (or, the Sheriff's Reserve, come to think of it).

That's an interesting way to lay the radios out. I'd expect the template to be consistent, but generally the ID goes to the end user. Guess they could all be aliased to 'VFD Pool' or something.

Neat! Thanks
