At the August 2011 Fire Chiefs meeting, a request was made for an encoder tone for County wide dissemination of pertinent information. Since none existed previous, a new encoder tone is now assigned. The encoder tone for Fire 1 (46.06 MHz) and Med 10 (462.975 MHz) is 910 – 871. It will be activated as part of weather announcements (advisory, watches, and warnings); Communications Center status change; and other pertinent county wide emergency information.
The encoder tone will be effective starting Monday October 10, 2011.
