Fireground Red is a universal channel that may receive neighboring communities if they use Fireground red. Most communities use the 800 MHz Talk Groups, which they refer to as "800 fireground." Some believe Fireground Red is more reliable because there is no half-second delay, and the communication is direct radio-to-radio, instead of going through a relay system from radio-to-tower-to-radio.
