We'll be transiting the GTA tomorrow, west to east, on the 401 (unless the 407 is finished at the east end and still isn't billing out of state plates :))

I've got TEMS' EDACS "Main" system in the ol' 396. Is that system still in use - I see the TGs on the PS system, too.

What about the TFS' SmartZone system? Can I get away with just dumping all the control channels (and TGs) in and still hear mostly all the fire stuff?

Don't give a hoot about the boys in blue (sorry).

TEMS EDACS is still being used.
Fire is dispatched from Site 001 (South) but then is assigned a TAC channel to the appropriate geo - zone . E.G. West TAC 1 , East TAC 1 ,...etc.

To hear only fire , just program your scan lists with at least the first six dispatch tg's and
all of the TAC tg's for each geo- zone. 407 ends at Brock ,BTW at it's eastern terminus.

From reading your posts , I think you're on a scanning safari , correct ? :wink:

OK, thanks. I needn't bother with the PS system EMS groups then, right?

OK, well, I just loaded ALL the channels marked as control channels for the Motorola PS system and put in all the Dispatch and "Command" (I gather that would be a Division somewhere else with Districts or Battalions under each Command?). Plus the Training and Common channels while I was at it. Think I'll get it "all" or at least most?

No , mostly it is hospital destination assignment and off-load delays of patients.

You are in good shape :)
