June 2020: The Northport Chiefs'; Paramedic; both ambulances; 3 pumpers - 2-9-3, 2-9-6, 2-9-8 & ladder 2-9-7 have a mobile data terminal and can use it to indicate they're responding, on scene or returing instead of using the radio. So at times you might not hear them but will hear the dispatcher acknowledge them on the radio.
Dec 2019: Halesite has moved to a UHF repeater system. However their dispatcher will still be heard on this feed.
This feed includes Eaton's Neck who uses the same 46.42 frequency & Centerport FD UHF freq 460.3625 (DPL 261)
*** Occasionally you'll hear dispatch transmissions from Morris & Middllesex Counties in NJ.***
