Local Information: 

Units may be patched, encrypted, or offset due to normal county operations. The GFD runs all operations off of KGB939 (154.2500 VHF) to have a separate channel from ICORRS in case the ICORRS system goes down. Surrounding agencies use the ICORRS system, including Mutual Aid EMS, Dist 3 Police (Greensburg PD), and surrounding townships and boroughs. The only Hempfield Township agency still uses "Township Fire" (154.35500) WAS Carbon Fire Department. However, as of 1/5/2021, they have switched to 800 MHz. The Hempfield Fire Department will keep Hempfield fire for patches, storm mode operations, and HEMA. Unity Township uses the old Mutual Aid EMS VHF channel as a backup for large storms or events where the center runs out of channels. In May 2022, Greensburg added a second repeater channel in case the main should go down. This frequency is the old Gbg Police channel. 

 

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 a fuzzy sound, which is caused by patches (from 800 P2 into VHF), radio not hitting the repeater, alternate type radios (EFJohnson, 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, chief officers and county DPS employees, and some company officers have APX-8000s. As of April 2023, all apparatus have 6 APX 900 VHF portables in their apparatus. Companies that run other brands of radios consist of:

Company 1- Motorola APX Series (Officers)

Company 2- Kenwood Viking Series (Officers)

Company 3 - Motorola HT Series (Officers) 

Company 6- Motorola APX Series (Officers)

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

Company 8- Motorola APX Series (Line Officers)


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.
