San Bernardino County Fire

Fire VHF system: Five repeater pairs have been placed in service countywide at multiple locations (see freq list). The "BDC V1 through BDC V5" sites are normally kept patched into the geographic area's 800mhz system, but the transmitter location can be changed on a per incident basis to give mutual aid resources access to working 800mhz talkgroups. The "BDC" VHF tac channels are used on mutual aid incidents where assisting agencies might not have 800mhz radios. Those resources can respond with Comm Center via the VHF repeaters, then switch to a common VHF tactical when on scene.

Sheriff Unit Designators

Unit designators consist of three fields [01]-[A]-[23]. The first field is the division or patrol area as follows:

The second field is the deputy descriptor or assignment. Certain descriptors are only used with specific divisions (e.g., "King" is only used with Aviation, thus 40-K). Each patrol station (not area) usually has one Captain and Lieutenant, and their designators do not have a third field (e.g., 6-C, not 6-C-1). Captains, Lieutenants, and Sergeants from stations in the patrol division that share multiple patrol areas normally take the county area designator as the first field of their unit designator (e.g., 6-S-5, not 16-S-5). "Xray" units may be motorcycle or regular patrol car units. The following table lists the descriptor or assignment.

[A] Descriptor/Assignment Field [01] Usage
A (Adam) Civilian station / field unit  
B (Baker) Reserve deputy  
C (Charlie) Captain  
D (David) Detective  
G (George) Gang enforcement deputy 61, some patrol division use

J (John) Station jail deputy  
K (King) Aircraft unit 40
L (Lincoln) Lieutenant

MET Multiple Enforcement Team deputy  
N (Nora) Narcotics enforcement deputy/officer 62
P (Paul) Beat patrol deputy / school resource officer  
R (Robert) Roving patrol deputy  
Rescue Search and rescue volunteer  
S (Sam) Sergeant  
V (Victor) Citizen Volunteer Patrol unit  
W (William) Special detail deputy  
X (Xray) Traffic deputy  
Z (Zebra) SWAT deputy 61, some patrol division use

The third field contains up to two digits. For "Paul" units, this field may be divided into two subfields, [2] and [3]. When [2] is a number from 1-4, [3] signifies the patrol beat number. The following table lists values for the subfield [2].

[2] Description
0 Resident post patrol deputy
1 Night shift

4 Cover shift
5 School resource officer
