Moving radios between vehicles or apparatus: TMR system

Volunteer agencies need to inform government when they’re moving trunked mobile radios (TMRs) from 1 vehicle or apparatus to another.

Use the Volunteer Agencies Information Form when moving trunked mobile radios (TMRs) from 1 vehicle to another or apparatus to another.

Volunteer agencies need to inform the Public Safety and Field Communications Office when a TMR permanently moves to another vehicle or apparatus so that the office can keep accurate records of what radios are where.
