Our department uses RELM SMV4099 radios from Communications Electronics and MaxRad antennas.

Update: RELM Communications, obviously suffering a major brain fart, has discontinued their line of feature-filled and economical radios. RELM has purchased Bendix-King and now sells B-K instead of their own brand. The RELM SMV4099 radios were $350. The Bendix-King radios are $1100+. Our new radio of choice is the Maxon 4150. Thanks RELM!!!

Update 2005: RELM is now making their own brand of mobile and portable radios again, and they are better than ever. We have been purchasing most of our pagers and radios from Falcon Wireless.

We purchase almost all of our fire equipment from Heiman Fire Equipment, Chief Supply, Darley, and The Fire Store.

American Communications Systems is a great place to buy radio supplies, especially older, hard-to-find parts.
