2 Franklin Township Fire District #1 Trunk Radio System Fire Department User Training Motorola XTL2500 (Mobiles) and XTS2500 (Portables) Joel Lipman Chief Station 26 Stephen Stashek Deputy Chief Station 28

3 Class Objectives Upon completion of this training, attendees should have attained An understanding of trunking radio systems. A working knowledge of the Motorola XTL2500 Mobile and the XTS2500 Portables radios. The ability to separate Command, and Operational communications.

4 Design objectives of the radio system: Enhance personnel safety. Decrease overcrowding of frequencies. Increase ability to effectively communicate. Establish Interoperability between Fire, EMS, PD, and other agencies.

5 Factors Prompting Development: Currently, the same frequency is often used for: 1.Dispatch 2.Responding & on-scene communications 3.Requests for additional resources 4.Ground operations In effect…….a party line…

6 Dispatch : Implementation of the new radio system will not change the dispatch system as we know it today. Paging – Unchanged

7 System Design Objectives: 95% mobile coverage 95% of the time. As with any radio system, there will be areas with signal coverage problems, = the 5% NOTE: Portables are not expected to have comparable coverage to the mobiles.

8 Trunk= A bank of frequencies designed to provide efficient communications with minimal radio congestion. Operates in a manner similar to popular “point to point” wireless devices. (EG: Nextel) Requires more user attention than comparable “push to talk” radios. Franklin Twp Trunked UHF System

9 Franklin Twp Trunked UHF System Franklin Twp Trunked UHF System Channel Banks for Fire Department Portables NOTE: SYSTEM MOBILES ARE CONFIGURED WITH THE BANK NAME PRECEEDING THE CHANNEL NAME. PORTABLES DO NOT DISPLAY THE BANK NAME. Bank A: Trunk and Conventional, Primary Bank B:Trunk, County Bank C:Franklin Administrative Channels Bank D:Trunk, Mutual Aid Bank E:Trunk and Conventional, County Bank F:Interoperability Channels

10 Franklin Twp Trunked UHF System Response Once dispatched (unchanged) Agencies will communicate on their primary trunk channel. (Fire District 1 for command, Fire Ops 1 for fire ground) (Fire District 1 for command, Fire Ops 1 for fire ground) During periods of heavy radio traffic, an alternate channel(s) can be requested or may be assigned.
