Numbering conventions

These conventions are becoming less widely used. They are currently used by Madison Twp., Heath, National Trails, Hebron (except for medics), Hartford, Utica, and Mary Ann Twp. Heath's and Hebron's apparatus are simply referred to by their name and unit number without a station number. (Example: "Heath Rescue 6")

xx1 Engine
xx2 Engine
xx3 Engine
xx4 Tanker
xx5 Tanker
xx6 Rescue
xx7 Grass Truck
xx8 Medic
xx9 Medic
10 Ladder

Dispatch format

  • Departments on 33.860, 151.295, and 151.1225:
<tone> - KQH904 to <callsign> <department name> <squad/fire>, <address> on <nature>, 904 clear at
  • Newark:
<alert, high-low for medic runs, solid for fire> - <apparatus>, <address> on <nature>.
Example: <solid alert> - Rescue 1, 2nd and Fleek on wires arcing.
  • West Licking:
<tone> - KQH904 to WPMJ506 West Licking <apparatus>, <address> on <nature>, 904 clear at

All departments are currently dispatched by the Licking County 911 center (the county's primary PSAP) in Newark for runs in Licking County. The Heath Police Department (the county's secondary PSAP) dispatched the Heath Fire Department until the installation of new radio equipment in 2008.


Fire/EMS departments in Licking County have moved almost entirely to plain language, although some remnants of BSSA codes remain. Also, the Newark Fire Department occasionally still use "10-22," their former code for the police department.
