It is really Signal 65-2 a former bell signal of 6 bells then 5 bells then a pause followed by 2 bells which told the Units to turn on the Dept Radio to monitor for a message....bells are no longer used but the term remains.

I knew that sorry, I meant more what the requirements of All Unit Circular 200 are. What the adjustments to staffing and additional apparatus activation are?

I thought you were asking about the Signal itself ...  here is a 2011 document covering the procedures  i am not sure if there have been updates to it though.....        http://firetesttaking.com/pdfs/auc/200.pdf
