Just another option - I currently work for a department with 5 stations all manned full time. I believe we use the Phoenix Station alerting or something along those lines, we call it "Barbara". Only the station(s) that are due get an escalating tone and the speakers light up with red light ring, and there are scrolling screens that show units due, address, map pg, etc. It goes off twice and if not reset manually then another two times. After the escalating tone there is an electronic female voice reading the dispatch...much easier to understand than real human dispatchers. You do not hear any radio traffic on the overhead speakers, only through the base radios in the stations.
