This weekend I happen to notice a Tri med ambulance parked here in the Winslow area of Bainbridge island. As it turns out they were grabbing a bite to eat at a near by pizza place. I didn't want to bother them with questions. Mainly because they just grabbed their meals, and went back to their ambulance. I've looked for frequencies for these guys. I can't find anything. Perhaps they just use cell phone/next tel for communications?

I am making connections in the public safety field through my photography. And would have talked to these guys if not for them being on the run.

And the HEAR radio is few and far between thse days, too.

I very seldom use the radio as most of the RNs don't like to talk on it. A typical radio report sounds like this...

"Highline ER from TriMed 92..."

...(waiting...)

"Highline ER from TriMed 92..."

...(still waiting...)

"This is Highline..."

You give your radio report and blah, blah, blah... when you finish, you hear,

"TriMed, we can't hear you. Call us on the phone..."

Never fails. i just use the phone now. I haven't used the radio in at least a year. (And in my rig, I don't even think it was programmed...)

I do miss being able to listen to Valley Com on the VHF radio. The switch really sucked.

Hi Rob
Yeah that didn't make sense to me either .. I bet they don't even have two way radios.
Steve
Oh no, all the rigs have VHF two way radios for HEAR. (It's a state requirement.) But nobody uses them. Everything is done on Nextel, telephone or through the Toughbooks/MDT.

And for that other guy, 155.22 is AMR (American Medical Response) So now you know what is in that radio you "buyed" from ebay.
