This is the general programming guide for All fire radios. There are variances for 16 channel portable radios and personally owned radios. All paging and voice dispatching is handled by the Fannin County Sheriff's office on either the North and South repeaters. These repeaters operate as a MULTI-NET radio system with both repeaters receiving and rebroadcasting the same radio traffic simultaneously. Due to Homeland Security regulation ALL Grant funded radios MUST have the National Inter-Operability channel plan. The repeater pair assigned to Ladonia Fire are used by Ladonia and Honey Grove only. Fire District pager tones see the "Fannin County Fire Paging System" section farther down this page. Since Bonham EMS do not talk on Fannin County Fire, County Fire crews will switch to Bonham EMS for medical reports. In-Bound Air Ambulances will communicate with Fire on either Bonham EMS or Fannin Fire depending on who answers first. Most Fire ground communications will be conducted on V-FIRE-21. 151.8200 (MURS-1) is designated at Mutual Aid and used for Traffic control or communications with Red Cross or other civilian services. All Fire Radio have listen only capability to the county SKYWARN repeater.
