The Bedford Fire department is self-dispatched from its own Police and Fire Communications Center "Bedford Headquarters", located in Safety Complex. They dispatch on 156.180 MHz with a PL of 94.8. The Bedford Communication Center also dispatches the Bedford Police Department.
Bedford Communications monitors 2 dedicated 9-1-1 lines, multiple business lines and radio frequencies and provides back-up Communications and Dispatch for other area centers in the event their communication capabilities are lost. If a criminal event, medical emergency or fire is in progress (any event in which there is a threat to life, community, or property), dial 9-1-1. These calls are routed through the NH Emergency 9-1-1 Centers then directly to our communications center for dispatch.
