Fairfax County Fire/Rescue Radio Codes

Sometimes you will hear activity status codes if a unit is voicing its status over the radio rather than the MDT. Status abbreviations: AIQ - Available In Quarters AOR - Available On Radio Activity Codes (there are many, many more, but these are probably the most common):

  • 11 - Returning to quarters
  • 32 - Administrative
  • 33 - Procuring Food
  • 40 - Transfer for coverage
  • 56 - District Familiarization

Fairfax County Police Patrols and Shifts

A listing of patrols, shifts, and special unit designations.

  • Sully Station (sta 1): All designators in the "one-hundred" range
  • Mt. Vernon (sta 2): All designators in the "two-hundred" range
  • McLean (sta 3): "three hundred"
  • Mason (sta 4): "four-hundred"
  • Reston (sta 5): "five-hundred"
  • Franconia (sta 6): "six hundred"
  • W. Spfld (sta 7): "seven hundred"
  • Fair Oaks (sta 8): "eight hundred"
  • Units that begin with a 9, like 970B, are field units and cover as backup to the entire district. You can tell what station they're assigned to by looking at the second digit in their designator. Example: 970B is from West Springfield, Station 7 - 950B would be from Reston, Station 5.

Shift Differentiation:

  • Midnights- "Adam" unit (e.g. "two-forty adam") is midnight unit assigned to area 240
  • Daywork- "Baker" unit (e.g. "eight-hundred baker")is daywork assigned to area 800
  • Evenings- "Charlie" unit(e.g."four-ten charlie")is evening unit assigned to area 410
  • X-ray unit - special assignment or traffic enforcement (e.g. "Xray 2x" - station 2 xray 3x - "station 3" etc etc)
  • Set units - bike team or special assignment (e.g. "Set 45" - mason, "Set 21" - mt vernon)
  • Squad Supervisors (usually 1 sgt and 1 lt per squad) use a "car" designator (e.g. "car-two adam" = station 2 midnight LT, "car-twenty adam" = station 2 midnight sgt, "car-three baker" = station 3 daywork lt, "car-thirty baker" = station 3 daywork sgt).
  • CIS units are station level detectives (e.g. "CIS 21" = station 2 detective )
  • CIB units are department level detectives (major crimes etc. designators differentiate between divisions (auto squad, robbery etc)
  • Wagon unit is designated by ending in an 8 - (e.g. "418 adam" is a midnight unit assigned to area 410 with the wagon) Double units are designeted by ending with a 9 (e.g. 219A "two-nineteen adam" is a double unit in area 210/211)
