I am just about done getting everything setup on my scanner for my 5 month stay in SF, but the one thing I am missing is the fire tones.

I am unable to find any information online. Does anyone happen to know what frequency is used for tone dispatch? Or even the tones?
I am fine with using the tone out search feature, but I don't even know the frequency to search on.

Any help would be awesome, thanks.

Are you asking for San Francisco Fire specifically, or the area of? As far as I know they are dispatched on their trunked system and the tones aren't transmitted.

Really anything in the surrounding area, EMS too. I have been using the trunked system so far. I just wasn't sure if they used pagers here or not. Maybe they don't have pagers?

I have heard tones on the trunked system, but they were not what I am used to at all. Plus, I don't think you can use trunked systems with the Uniden fire tone out feature.
