        From what I gathered on the way into work, they're working AT LEAST the
        following frequencies/talkgroups - I don't have IDs handy because all I have
        are alpha tags ;)

        The primary talkgroups are (RCS South) South Command 1, South Tac 1

        According to dispatch, "commands and tacs are being assigned by the IC"...
        Various strike teams and admin traffic are working on (RCS South) Heartland
        Zone, Heartland Admin, Inland Dispatch, Inland Tac 11 and on San Diego 7B
        (Admin).

        The San Diego Type 3 strike team told San Diego they're working Division D
        (near Willows Road) on White 1 - 154.2800.

        I would also imagine CDF Local (151.1900), CNF Forest Net
        (168.7500/415.4500), and any number of the CDF Commands and Tacs being used.

            There were Type 1 and Type 3 strike teams from San Diego, South Bay, and
            Inland en-route that I heard. I imagine North County and Rancho would be
            sending them too so there should be traffic all over the RCS systems...

            It might also be worthwhile to monitor the County Call and County Tacs on
            RCS as well as things like LawAir for evacuation and interagency stuff...
            Don't forget CHP on Gold 1 (39.6000)...

            This thing looks BIG and not much has burned out there in recent memory...

            From the CHP CAD -

            10:14AM - FIRE APPEARS TO BE SPREADING TOWARD SOUTH GRADE RD
            10:12AM - WILL BE MOVING CLOSURE JAPATUL AT TAVERN/DEHESA TO DEHESA
            RD JEO SYCUAN CASINO IN ABOUT 45 MINS
            10:07AM - FIRE HAS GONE OVER THE RIDGE - NOW IN PETERSON CREEK AREA
            (TG 1254 G4)
