To my knowledge, FRES is hoping to pull the plug on low band by end of year. After low band is pulled, you'll have to communicate w/FRES you'll have to on the 700/800 system.

FRES activations will be on UHF Paging West and East. I don't think East is being used yet, due to some issues with Nassau County. UHF Paging West is being used for depts that want to be activated on it. Some of the Vol Amb agencies will continue to be activated by FRES on Medcom 1 freq 155.280

Most depts have their own dispatch, or use a contracted neighboring FD or a township dispatch or PD for services. Most activate and operate on their own UHF. Most depts use FRES for an initial activation only if the call comes through 911/FRES. After that, the local dispatcher takes over.

FRES doesn't dispatch too many agencies 100%. The exception is a few Ems agencies in the 3rd & 5th Div, Fire Island FD's and some FD's in the 5th and 6th Divisions.

FRES will be asking depts to simulcast activations with low band 46.46 (if they're capable) so FRES knows they received the call. Otherwise, I think FRES will request depts to verbally acknowledge the call on the 700/800 system. Eventually, I heard that FRES will keep low band 46.46 active, for receiving purposes only for call confirmation for those depts who still simulcast their activations over low band.

New pagers scan 2 freqs at once. Most depts have their own & FRES scanning. Some depts will do a UHF to UHF cross band with FRES, but it's not really necessary.
