It is the individual fire department's or the county fire dispatch's decision as to what they set their siren off for. Some will do it for every call 24 hours a day (medical call, car accident,alarm system activation, fuel spill, brush fire, whatever). Some will only do it for confirmed house/building fires, as they don't happen too often so the siren isn't blowing 5-6 times a day for the more frequent type of calls. A lot of FD's are starting to put timers on their systems that "lock" the siren during certain hours so it won't go off at night. It keeps the neighbors happy.Valtonus wrote:This question have been eating me up.... When a siren goes off for a "Fire call" what does that exactly mean, does it go off every time there is a house fire? That question is just killing me..
