After Grenfell it looks like DMR is dead for fire ground.
Comms were impossible and analogue sets had to be rushed to the scene to restore comms.
DMR works where one person is talking at once, on big jobs with panic calls the benefits of DMR are outweighed by cross coms wipeouts.

99% of DMR portables are analogue as well !! No need to call for different radios, they just change channels..
This works well for the Fire Service, when working with a brigade with DMR fireground radios they use DMR channels, when working with analogue equiped service they use analogue channels..

Where did you get your info from ??

Where did they "rush" these analogue sets from? A hire shop? Radio issues were in the list of problems that the press said effected the rescue.

This document from GMFRS in Sept 2013 says Lancashire have DMR radios but "Lancashire can switch to analogue if required when they enter our service area"

This document about Fireground radios from Sept 2015 says that GMFRS have "several hilltop sites to give greater coverage".

I reserve the right to ignore people who have made no attempt to the read the manual, and expect others to do it for them.
