McClellan-Palomar Airport Fire Department?

Does anyone know what frequencies these units use and who dispatches them? Although it's within the city limits of Carlsbad, it's a County airport and the Carlsbad FD web site doesn't mention having units there.

County owns the apparatus (Rescue 7 and Rescue 8), and I think Rural-Metro staffs them with private firefighters under contract to the County. As far as frequencies, when a call goes down I hear them come up for North Comm on their channels (North Comms) requesting and canceling units.
