​Wake County's Emergency Communications uses an 800-MHz, 14-channel, trunked radio system. The radio system provides interoperable communications, meaning law enforcement, fire and EMS users can communicate with each other on the same radios.
 
The scanner guide outlines the equipment needed to monitor emergency radio traffic and the frequencies and talk groups used.
