Feed Notes

Frequencies Monitored: 

1) Greensburg Fire 1- Dispatch and Operations-Repeater--KGB939: Frequency 154.250000          Input: 153.950000          Offset: -.3

2) Greensburg Fire 2- Operations T/A--KGB939: Frequency: 154.1450000   Off-Repeater Operations Channel 


Local Information: 

Units may be patched, encrypted, or offset due to normal county operations. The GFD runs off of KGB939 (154.2500 VHF) in order to have a separate channel should the 800 mHz system go down. Surrounding agencies use the 800 system including Mutual Aid EMS, Dist 3 Police (Greensburg PD) and surrounding townships and boros. The only agency in Hempfield Township to still use "Township Fire" (154.35500) WAS Carbon Fire Department, however as of 1/05/2021, they have switched to 800 MHz as well. Hempfield fire will be kept for patches, storm mode operations and HEMA. Unity Township uses the old Mutual Aid EMS VHF channel as a back up for large storms or events where 911 runs out of channels to use.

 

More about us:

We use a VHF/UHF scanner plugged into a laptop to provide optimal sound and service to our listeners. Listeners may hear fuzzy sound, which is caused by patches (from 800 P2 into VHF), radio not hitting the repeater, alternate type radios (EFJohnston, Kenwood, Baofeng, etc.) or (usually) due to people not talking correctly into the radio. Greensburg generally runs Motorola HT-750, some have HT-1000 or HT-1250, and chief officers and county DPS employees, and some company officers have APX-8000s. Companies that run other brands of radios consist of:

Company 1- Kenwood Viking series (Officers), Motorola

Company 6- Motorola APX Series (Officers)

Company 7- Varies based on person (Motorola, Baofeng, TYT, etc.)

Company 8- Motorola APX Series (Captain)


Things to know:

The GFD is NOT responsible for any accident that occurs by listeners coming to the scene. Be sure to spectate from a safe distance, and respect all emergency scene laws. RECOMMENDATION: If it is your first time checking out a scene, stay about 150 feet away from the closest firefighter or fire apparatus-- keep in mind: If there's one, more are coming.
