05/19/11 119 W - + 6 - 6 That Long String of Tones

Exactly how many different dispatch tones do we hear, for a haz-mat call at North Carolina State University? Tonight's is the third (or is it fourth?) in recent days. Let's see if we can count and correctly identify them:

  1. Engine 5 on main campus or Engine 20 on Centennial Campus
  2. Engine 8 (usually responding as SR2, a recon unit)
  3. Ladder 7 
  4. Ladder 5 (usually responding as SR 3, a decon unit)
  5. Rescue 3
  6. Battalion 3
  7. Air 1
  8. Haz-Mat 1 (staffed by Engine 2)
  9. Haz-Mat 2 (staffed by Engine 15)
  10. Car 10
That should be about right. Might be a second Battalion Chief in there. What's the EMS response, you ask? Three ambulances, two chiefs, one APP, and the special operations support unit. e.g., big ol' Truck 1.
