Fire house PA system
« on: June 25, 2012, 03:25:04 PM »
Does anyone know anything about this red phone and what it does besides being used as a PA system for the fire house? I wanted to try and buy one of these and put one in my house, but I can't find them on Ebay or any other web site. I believe they are made by Purvis, but can't find a pic of them anywhere. Check out frame 224-230 on the YouTube video

The red phone is not a PA system for the firehouse. This phone is used to contact the dispatcher during morning roll call and whenever else needed. The mic that is wired into the red phone is what is used as a PA system for the firehouse.

I should have clarified that. I meant the red box with the phone and mic attached to it.

You would answer the VOICE ALARM with the RED phone.
