Local 'Fire Channel' to pay respect to fallen 19 firefighters


On Monday, July 8, 2013 at 12:00 p.m., the El Paso County Sheriff’s Office Communications Center will announce a radio tribute to the fallen firefighters from Prescott, Arizona.  The tribute will broadcast over Talk Group “EPSORED”, otherwise known as the “Fire Channel”. 


Once the tribute is read, any fire departments that are able to participate will be prompted over the radio to acknowledge dispatch.  Once that process is complete, the ringing of the bell will be broadcast.  The ringing of the bell signifies the end of the Prescott 19’s final watch.

Members of the media are invited to listen in via their own agency scanners and/or similar applications used to monitor police and fire radio traffic.
