It seems to me there are changes happening with Seattle Fire.

A cpl of minutes ago I heard an MVA dispatch which was on channel 1 (as opposed 5). The sound it made was also the sound they make when there's a fire/rescue call (like when a car window is punched out and the alarm sounds as opposed to medical emergencies "hi-lo" warble sound).

The tones are different for fire responses/medical responses

"Channel 1" aka SFD TAC1 is fire responses (also "MVA Response")
"Channel 5" is for "aid" responses

Obviously sometimes things over lap (MVA that also has injuries) but they will dispatch it as it as an MVA.

You will also hear "rescue" "hazmat" "full response" on "Channel 1" as well.

Nothing has changed.
