Unit Numbers

Washington County has been making a migration toward having less separation between different police agencies within the county. There is a basic separation between the West and South parts of the county, where dispatching is now typically combined respectively. Many of the agency specific talk groups are used much less, if at all. To be able to distinguish units of different agencies, Washington County police units have 4 digit unit numbers as identifiers, with different agencies in different ranges. Listed below are the ranges each agency falls within.

Unit Number Agency Dispatch Agency Dispatch TGID
1000 Hillsboro Police Department Hillsboro Police Department Dispatch 60528
2000 Tigard Police Department South City Police Agencies Dispatch 60848
3300 King City Police Department South City Police Agencies Dispatch 60848
3400 North Plains Police Department Washington County Sheriff's Office Dispatch 64048
4000 Forest Grove Police Department Washington County Sheriff's Office Dispatch 64048

Washington County Fire & EMS

All Washington County fire agencies are dispatched by and through the Washington County Consolidated Communications Agency (WCCCA), and are assigned a few dispatches known collectively as FIRECOM. They are responsible for dispatching all calls within the county, as well as requesting mutual aid from neighboring agencies, such as LOCOM, CCOM, and BOEC.

There are eight primary talkgroups, in addition to various miscellaneous talkgroups. For a complete listing, see the Washington County/Clackamas County trunked radio system in the RaidoRefernce database.

EMS Agencies

MetroWest Ambulance provides BLS, ILS, and ALS transportation for all medical-related incidents within the county, as well as non-emergency assistance to those with extensive or specialized mobility needs.

During peak operating hours, or when all ambulance resources are committed, TVF&R has three medic units that are staffed Tuesday-Friday (7am-5pm) and provide ALS care and transportation to area hospitals if Metro West isn't available. In addition, Hillsboro Fire & Rescue and Forest Grove Fire & Rescue have rescue units that can also transport patients to local hospitals if Metro West isn't available. These times occur approximately 2-3 times a month.

The Lifeflight Network of Oregon, a system of specially outfitted helicopters, airplanes, and ground transportation provide service in Washington County for critical care transport to Portland area hospitals and trauma centers. Lifeflight 2 based at the Aurora Airport in Marion County and Lifeflight 7 based in Longview, WA provide the closest coverage to Washington County coverage for the Portland Metro area. (NOTE: Lifeflight 1, which used to be based at the Hillsboro Airport is no longer there)
