North Reading Fire
|North Reading Fire||Public Safety
Here at the North Reading Fire Department we have the ability to operate on one of three UHF channels from our fire alarm office, located at 152 Park Street.
CH1 is repeated with 6 receiver sites and is our primary operations channel.
CH2 is the direct frequency of CH1
CH3 is currently a simplex, 6 receiver site system. (458.250)
CH4 is a single site (P25) repeater with encryption
** In July of this year (2017) the police/fire departments were lucky enough to acquire a capital improvement line item to purchase a microwave system to replace aging copper wire technology. We will also be upgrading all our receiver sites and adding a new fireground channel equal to our CH1 giving us a much needed safety boost at incidents. Along with site improvements will be a new state of the art dispatch console. We look forward to these updates and providing a second feed to monitor our new fireground channel. Completion date is the first of the year.
