That's a pretty broad question. Kind of like asking "I have a car in my garage with a horn, but I can't find any audio of what it sounds like". Do you have a manufacturer and model for this siren? Is it up on a pole outside of the building or inside? If you could post pics of it, that might help as well.

That's a full sized air raid siren. I think he's talking about a station alerting system (aka a speaker on a wall inside that emits a tone).

Its called a "Call-Tone" Most stations and dept's have them Each station has their own call-tone. When they are dispatched out that tone goes off prior to the call being anounced.
