County Quick Jumps


 


The majority of police, fire, and EMS operations in Barnstable County are trunked. Check the "Massachusetts State Police Statewide" link below for details. At a minimum, ensure that 855.5375 and 854.3625 are programmed as Motorola Type II. These are the control channels for Smartzone 04 of the MSP system, which covers the majority of Cape Cod. Also, if you live in or are visiting the "lower cape" (Wellfleet, Truro, Provincetown especially) you'll want to program MSP Zones 06 and 11.

Many Cape Cod Fire Departments are licensing UHF frequencies for simulcasting. Check individual towns for details. You will definitely want these programmed in the event the MSP Zone 04 system fails.
