Each of these repeaters are located in Fairfield, IL. Except for N. Wayne Ambulance (whose repeater is located on their own tower in Cisne)

The Sheriff's repeater has a voting system. The repeater's transmitter is on the county's tower next to the courthouse in Fairfield. Remote receivers are located in Wayne City, Orchardville, and Mt.

There is a remote base located 2 miles north of Fairfield on Enterprise Road. Dispatch uses a 450mhz link to use the remote base. Pager Tests are done at 6pm every night.
