Clay Co. Fire Tone Out

Vermillion/Clay County South Dakota Fire & EMS Tone-Outs
Tone Out Frequency Mod. Tone A Freq Hz Tone B Freq Hz
Vermillion FD1 155.9400 FM 0.0 Hz 688.3 Hz
Vermillion FD2 155.9400 FM 1901.0 Hz 1036.0 Hz
Vermillion EMS 155.9400 FM 589.7 Hz 589.7 Hz

Both entries for FD (1 & 2) are needed as it is a 3-tone page-out. FD1 group tone 688.3hz is sounded for about 3 seconds, immediately followed by FD2 which sounds 1901.0 Hz for 1 second and 1036.0 Hz for 3 seconds. This is the only way I've found to get it working on a Uniden BCD396T.
