This was an interesting day.
What was supposed to happen: Me and Luke were supposed to go to Kinzer so they could set off their Sterling thing off for us. I brought my MS-390, wanting to set it off with the siren.
What actually happened: I got to Kinzer SUPER EARLY. I got thirsty so I went down to the Citgo down the road (it was a run-down place that looked like some people would be dealing drugs in the corner of the store lol. It wasn't that bad, but it kinda looked scary...) for a water. I came back, and we waited in the parking lot for Luke. We eventually got bored and left. As we were leaving, the Sterling fired up in attack. Turns out there was a manpower assist that required a truck to go out. It went for not one, not two, not three, but SIX cycles of attack. My mom pulled into the other parking lot, and I jumped out of the car to get a video. It was quite punchy. Not only was it 16 port (rare for a K5, usually they are 12 port) but it was BRAKED, which is even more rare. The siren wound down and we stayed there for a bit, looking at houses because there was a house dealer near the FD. Eventually we got bored, and got back in the car. The siren then fired up yet again and I got a better video this time. This was for a barn fire that eventually spread because it was very windy that day. Luke arrived about 5 mins later and I told him what happened. Sadly, the Chief left for the call so no siren for him that day and no good video of it for either of us. They pulled out the remaining fire truck and did a light, horn, and siren display for us. We saw a Pennsylvanian with a NYC observation on it, so that's epic. We eventually left because the Chief was gonna be a while.

I'll upload the other videos later.

Bumping this thread because new info has been found.
This thing isn't even a K5. Nor is it 16 port, it is around 14 port. We have no idea what it is, but we came down to that it MIGHT be an Erick Fire Siren, a 5HP one.
