Public Safety Overview
Trunked Radio Systems
As of November 9, 2016, most public safety agencies operating in Dane County are using one of three trunked radio systems. City of Madison agencies, along with UW Police, Capitol Police, and Monona Police currently use the 800MHz Motorola Analog Madison Area Public Safety system. Dane County agencies and most other municipal agencies are using the VHF P25 DaneCom system. State Agencies not using the Madison Area Public Safety system, such as the Wisconsin State Patrol, can be found on the statewide WISCOM system. DaneCom and WISCOM are ISSI linked for interoperability. DaneCom currently has patches to the Madison Area Public Safety system for critical talkgroups; full ISSI linking is expected to occur upon completion of the City's upgrade to P25.
Dane County is maintaining two analog tactical channels, DANETAC 1 and 2, for fireground and law enforcement tactical use. Fitchburg, McFarland, Monona, Stoughton, and Sun Prairie are also maintaining local analog fireground and/or tactical channels.
All units with VHF-capable radios should have access to VCALL10 and MARC 1/2, and fire units should also have access to IFERN and the MABAS fireground channels. VCALL10 will be continuously monitored by Dane County Public Safety Communications (PSC) for use as a backup to DaneCom and for agencies who are unable to reach dispatch. PSC will also monitor EMS B and configure hosptial patches for ambulances that are not able to access DaneCom.
