    Post Radios

    Does your company have a portable for every member if they are active? We do XD finally after waiting 6 months

    Are you asking if Explorers are issued radios or the general membership of the dept??

    Only officers are issued portable radios. The rest are on the apparatus. There is one for every air pack.
    Even the burger-flippers at McDonald's probably have some McWackers.

    I have my own radio(s), so it's not an issue.

    1 Motorola HT 1550 (had a 1250)
    2 Motorola Maxtrac's (repeater, VHF)

    The repeater is for amateur radio, but also covers the normal "public safety" bands (if ever programmed to do that. Which it's not!)

    As a department the officers and the members are all issued radios / portables. Juniors are issued pagers, but no radio.

    at my dept., only officers are issued their own personal radios, but when we're on calls everyone has a radio cause all of our trucks have a radio in every seat

    I have a pager, and the dept. has radios for every seat on every truck, but I am not issued a portable. Depending on the activity, etc. we may get portables or just family radios.
