The WFD is part of a GE 800 mhz trunked radio system used by the city. The department uses GE MPA portable radios. Each radio is assigned 16 different talk groups the WFD uses. There is an admin group on which the majority everyday radio traffic is handled. The department also has 3 operations groups to which incidents can be switched per the incident commander. (This is mandatory on all reported structure fires); this allows an incident its own operations channel. Fire Prevention, Training and Maintenance each have their own talk group. The WFD is dispatched out of the Emergency Communications Department at 9-11 Lincoln Sq. where all 911 calls are answered using an E-911 system. Calls are then transferred to the appropriate dispatchers. Call receipt and dispatching at Communications is automated with a CAD system.
