York County Fire System

  • Sanford Regional Communications Center (RCC) has taken over the dispatching of the fire departments that use the York County UHF system (460.5500 MHz.) as of July 2009.
  • UHF fire primary channels 1, 2 and 3 are not simulcast and cover different areas. Most calls are toned out twice over different repeaters to ensure more complete coverage.
  • UHF fire tactical simplex channels 4 and 8 and usually assigned for fireground operations.
  • UHF fire tactical repeater channels 5, 6 and 7 are generally used more for administrative type traffic.
  • Although still licensed by several communities, there is no longer any use of low-band fire frequencies.
  • Agencies using 155.7450 (118.8) are dispatched by SP Augusta.

State Fire

  • State Fire, 154.3100 (No PL) is the statewide mutual aid frequency.
  • 154.2800 and 154.2650 (No PL) are licensed by the State Fire Chiefs Association and used by many VHF departments as tactical channels.
  • The Pike Ops channel 151.0700 (107.2 PL) is being used by fire departments responding (Interop) onto the Maine Turnpike to coordinate with Maine State Police.

Emergency Management

  • York County EMA channels 159.7800 MHz and 460.4500 are crossbanded to allow interoperable communications between departments on VHF and those on UHF during major incidents.
  • EMA channels are also used by the three fire towers in York County staffed by volunteers during times of high fire danger: Mt. Agamenticus (York), Mt. Hope (Sanford) and Ossipee Mtn. (Waterboro)
