Simcoe County Information/Overview

Simcoe County

Simcoe County is located in the area generally referred to as Central Ontario. It is bordered by Muskoka to the north, York Region to the east, York and Peel Regions to the south, and Grey and Dufferin Counties to the west.

Public Safety

Most policing of Simcoe County is done by the Ontario Provincial Police. They are dispatched from the Orillia Comm Centre on the Fleetnet.


The exceptions are the City of Barrie, South Simcoe and the Town of Midland. Interagency communications are normally done on OPC Common 142.7700Mhz.

Fire Service is provided by each municipality within Simcoe County. Each utilizes it's own frequency however a County Wide mutual aid channel is also available.

Toneouts and Station Lists for the various municipalities within the County can be found on the County 10 Code and Unit Lists page.

EMS is provided by the Ministry of Health. Ambulances are paged out on 149.4400Mhz and respond on Fleetnet.

Countywide Agencies

Ontario Provincial Police

The Ontario Provincial Police use the Bell Mobility Fleetnet Zone 1 system for most of their communications. All communications on the Operational Talkgroups are APCO25. Interagency talkgroups are generally analog but are rarely used. The OPP also make use of analog mobile repeaters and wide area analog repeaters for portable coverage.

The following detachments are located within Simcoe County:

Collingwood, Dufferin, Huronia West, Orillia and South Georgian Bay.

They are active on the following digital APCO25 talkgroups:

DEC HEX Mode Alpha Tag Description

8688  21f  OPP 1OPS40  Town of Caledon 1S - 1OPS40 


During normal operations, the Orillia Comm Centre will patch two talkgroups together. The following patches are usually in place on the system:

Barrie is normally patched with Southern Georgian Bay and Collingwood is normally patched with Huronia West. Due to a bug in early Uniden scanners, make sure you program in both talkgroups. If you only program Barrie in and the patch is setup on Southern Georgian Bay's talkgroup, you will not hear anything.

Mnjkaning (Rama First Nation) units are generally heard on the Orillia talkgroup although at times, they will use their own talkgroup.

Special Operations and Events will be found on the Tactical talkgroups. Orillia Comm Centre is assigned 1TAC05 - 1TAC08.

    143.160000              


Other sites in the area that carry Simcoe County traffic are: Penetang, Primrose, Kimberley, King City and Sunderland.

If you do not have a digital scanner, it is sometimes possible to still listen to the OPP using one of their mobile analog repeaters (VR 01, VR02 or VR03) or a wide area analog repeater (BEAT 01, BEAT 02 or URBAN).

The mobile and wide area analog repeater frequencies can be found on the Fleetnet Conventional Frequencies Page.

Collingwood and Alliston use BEAT 01, Huronia West and Casino Rama use BEAT 02 and Orillia uses URBAN. Barrie and Southern Georgian Bay do not utilize wide area analog repeaters.

The mobile repeater channel VR01 is the main channel for all mobile repeaters in Simcoe County.

VR02 is used by the Highway Safety Division units which patrol Highway 400.

VR03 is used for special events and for aircraft intercepts.

Ministry of Health (EMS Services)

Ambulance Service is provided throughout Simcoe County by the Ministry of Health. Communications will be found in analog on the Bell Mobility Fleetnet Zone 1 system. The two talkgroups used for Simcoe County are Georgian North and Georgian South.

The Georgian North talkgroup covers the municipalities of: Orillia, Severn Township, Town of Midland, Town of Penetang, Oro-Medonte Township, Tay Township, Tiny Township, Town of Wasaga Beach, Town of Collingwood and the Township of Clearview.

The Georgian South talkgroup covers the municipalities of: Bradford West Gwillimbury, Barrie, New Tecumseh, Essa Township, Springwater Township and Adjala-Tosorontio Township.

The Ministry of Health also utilizes several conventional frequencies

Frequency  Input   
Type  Tone  Alpha Tag  Description  Mode  Tag 
150.10000      BM  CSQ  MOHPCOM Provincial Common  FM  EMS Dispatch

413.68750  418.68750   RM  CSQ  ORNGE Base ORNGE Air Ambulance Base  FMN  EMS-Talk 


These include several vehicular repeater frequencies utilized when ambulance personnel are away from their vehicles, station paging, a common simplex channel and a backup tactical channel. The station paging frequency is used by Georgian CACC to page the appropriate station with details of the call. When in the vehicle, the crew will respond on the appropriate dispatch talkgroup.

If an accident is serious enough, the Air Ambulance could be called in. In the southern part of Simcoe County, listeners might be able to hear the output of the repeater located near Aurora in York Region. If not able to hear the output of the repeater, then listening to the input will allow the helicopter to be heard. Communications between Georgian CACC, land ambulances and the Air Ambulance generally take place on Provincial Common, 150.1000.

Once enroute to the hospital, the crew will request a patch to the hospital. Generally Tac 1 and Tac 2 are used for patches to hospitals within Simcoe County. Georgian CACC will call alert the hospital and then patch the Tac channel assigned with the specific hospital talkgroup. Normally, it is only necessary to program in the Tac channels although sometimes, the hospital talkgroup is the talkgroup the patch is setup on. Tac 5 is sometimes used for special events and is worth programming in.

Policing

Policing for the Town of Penetang is provided by the Ontario Provincial Police's Southern Georgian detachment. Communications are on the Southern Georgian Bay Detachment's 1OPS35 talkgroup and the units identify themselves with 1Kilo callsigns. The 1OPS35 talkgroup is usually patched with the Barrie 1OPS30 talkgroup. Unfortunately, no BEAT repeaters exist within this or Southern Georgian Bay's area so listeners with analog scanners will have to try and catch one of the vehicular repeater (VR) frequencies.

The Central North Correctional Centre (Superjail) resides in the Town of Penetang and has several analog frequencies. Superjail vehicles use the Bell Mobility Radio Fleetnet system when outside of the facility.

Fire Service

Penetang FS uses a VHF repeater for all dispatch and operations. Toneouts are on the repeater.
