    Default call Alertion System

    we are a small volunteer dept in NC and we have several members on live in status and was wondering if anyone had an idea of an alertion system (i.e. tone generator) that was relatively inexespensive ?

    Default ALERTING systems

    It would depend on your current alerting system. Pagers? Radio? If it's via pagers, there are off-air decoders that can be configured to operate tones, maybe throuigh a computer. But the live-in guys could just have pagers anyway - mine wakes me very well!

    Radio alerting? Sorry, we don't have it.

    We tied it in to the PA/Intercom system that is tied into our phones. It has worked great for us........

    That would the Aleutian Islands. Although I'm not sure altertion is a word either.

    If you get toned over the air like most places, you can get a Motorola CDM750 mobile radio and a 12v power supply. It can decode the tones, generate an alert, drive relays, auto-reset, etc etc.
    Even the burger-flippers at McDonald's probably have some McWackers.

    I belonged to a department while I was in school that had a Minitor 5 amplified charger wired into the station PA system. So when the pager went off, it went off over the PA.
    Just know, I chose my own fate. I drove by the fork in the road and went straight.
