Heya,

Generally it's WAERN 354 (VHF Hi Band) however could be between 354-359 depending on other incidents in close proximity.

If mid band generally 99 when working with Airport Fire. Mid band HHs aren't common anymore.

It could be between 354-369 really. And mid band 46-49 or 96-99 but as stated not common any more.

However if you are talking more on house fires, and career fire fighters they use UHF portables.

Most of the time no. WAPOL also have SES 1 to 20 programmed into their vehicle and handheld radios.
