The Southern Worcester County Fire Mutual Aid Network operates on the Fire district 7 frequencies. The Primary Use of this network is for requesting mutual aid from surrounding towns and activating District 7 Strike Teams. Two weekly tests and roll call are conducted by Station 25 Southbridge on Tuesday evenings at 19:30 hrs and on Saturday at 11:30 hrs. In a previous life, stations radios had to be opened up with a DTMF code, the codes were 70## where ## is the station number (i.e. 7010 for Station 10) or 7*** to open up all radios. Now a days, most stations have always open radios although the DTMF is still used for the tests and if a response is not received.

There is also a UHF link cross band repeater located at the Charlton Fire Tower. The link is used for Station 25 Southbridge to actually transmit from and receive transmissions from the Tower location. This is a low power directional link.

There is also a UHF link cross band repeater located at the Northbridge Water Tower. The link is used for Station 41 Northbridge to actually transmit from and receive transmissions from the Tower location. This is a low power directional link.
