It's a pretty simple system. Each station is assigned a set of two ones. The equipment (both the equipment in the station and the volunteer pagers if that station has volunteers) is always 'listening' on its assigned frequency but stays muted until it receives the set of tones it's programmed to respond to.
When it receives the correct set of tones, it makes an alert sound and unmutes the audio so they can hear the dispatcher.

Thanks for the reply, hfxchris. I've been hearing Fire Tones on New Brunswick TMR at the same time as on the VHF fire frequencies.

Ok, some of their dispatching centres up there must transmit over both simultaneously. This thread was asking specifically about Halifax fire.
