Just so you know, the Vortex and 4004 are two different sirens, not the same siren. There are a few differences between them. For starters, the 4004 is voice capable, whereas the Vortex isn’t. The 4004 also has a circular knob on the rotator, which the Vortex doesn’t have. Furthermore, older Vortexes have a “fin” on the back of them.

i know that i just wasnt sure because they look similar.furthermore only the gen 1 Vortexes have a fin on their back. the one at NAO North Island could be a Gen 2 vortex or a WPS-4004 because it doesnt have a fin on its back.

In the semi-rural area where I live, we have fire sirens that call volunteer firefighters to the fire departments, and they double as storm sirens. The fire signal is three 20-second cycles (or nine 20-second cycles, or sometimes four 15-second cycles in some places), EMS-only calls are 30 seconds of alert, and weather warnings are 3 minutes of attack. Typically there's two or three per town. My town has an active Sterling M-10 downtown as well as a defunct Sterling N-5 on a former factory building, plus a Sentry 10V (my profile picture) in the hinterlands outside town. The town next door used to have an active 5/7 and a Darley 3V8 as a backup to it, but they both fell through the roof when the station burned down in 2016.
There is also a FS Model 5 half a mile from my college campus that sounds for all Fire/EMS calls, so I hear it almost literally every day at college. Music to my ears.

We use a GCS STH-10 siren (downtown)
A Fs Eclipse8 (Near the School)
A Fs Eclipse8 (near me half a block away to be percise)

We use Wail for fire calls and siren testing
