Sounds like TFD is starting to launch their previously announced digital dispatch system. This morning there are ongoing "tests" of short transmissions with a data burst followed by a computerized voice announcing "Building Fire", "Alarm Activation", "Non-Emergency Service Call" etc.

Their actual alarms are still going out with the old tone system, but I suspect the days of decoding fire tone outs on TFD are numbered!

Probably Locution and is very popular in the SE region of the state.

No more Tallahassee FD Tone Outs

It appears that TFD has made the switch to digital alerting, no more old fashioined tones being used, so no Tone Outs on BC 15, BC 396, Two Tone detect etc.

As of now, tones are still being used for the five county VFDs
