  1. Concerned Citizen says:

    Can anyone explain why a 2nd tone out was needed for Silver Lake Fire and Silver Lake Rescue to respond to a fire call? Did the tone out not work the first time? Do I need to be concerned about this?

  2. @Concerned says:

    The tones worked the first time.
    the reason why there was a second tone is because KCJS had a report of a second call on the same call thats why. another person called 911 because of the alarm.
    Silver Lake Fire & Rescue showed up and the call was taken care of and was out the door at a very reasonable time.

  3. Concerned Citizen says:

    @Concerned: OK thanks for the explanation. Much appreciated!
