    Default Portable Radios

    Does anyone know what the guidelines are for portable radios? Is it based upon the numbers of seated firefighters per apparatus?

    Yes, seated positions like SCBA but still with the min 4 per pumper, quint/aerial, heavy rescue.

    Do you still need portable radios in the trucks if ALL of your personel is assigned a department radio?

    If they already have radios then no real need to request any. But they won't fund personal radios, only to the seat count. What you do with them after you get them is up to you, they don't really care as long as you have them and use them.

    1 per member, they won't fund spares.

    Thanks for the info. That is what I thought - one per SCBA seat.
