Two Tone Paging

For many years all the fire departments in Snohomish County relied on Two Tone paging to be alerted of a call. That has since been replaced by alpha numeric pagers and MDT‘s (mobile data terminal).

Two Tone paging was shut off for good in 2012 never to be heard again. It’s a bit nostalgic for some of us who grew to know each departments tones and used them to know what type of call was about to be dispatched.

I’ve collected recordings of “most” of the tones used throughout the county. Click on the Two Tone Paging button above and navigate through the tabs to listen to each departments set of tones.
