Back when 'lots' of fire departments (mainly PA / NY / TN and Texas) used low band. Heard a fire tone out on 33.88 Mhz. House fire in Cypress Springs, TX. It is located North West of Houston, TX. Even could hear the portable on scene. Not bad being up in Northwestern IL. which is 1100 miles away.

I listened to 33.88 due to the fact my late father was on the North Franklin County Volunteer Fire Dept. Just south of Tullahoma, TN. When the 'skip' was right - I could hear the evening test page or if lucky could hear a real alert. Sadly they moved to a mountain top VHF repeater15 years ago. 33.88 MHz was the old statewide 'Sheriff' channel. All LEO communications are now up on UHF or 700 / 800 MHz statewide trunking systems.

Heard this morning, just a single transmission from dispatch (no names included because I didn't remember them):
"We have a welfare check on Chick A and a Corvette, sounds like this is originating from out of town. RP states Chick A is fighting with Chick B, as usual, and last night Chick A threatened to damage RP's Corvette with a hammer, so he would like it out of her garage."
I was headed to work so I didn't get to stick around and listen for a resolution.

Heard today -
Dispatch: "Zone 2 animal complaint."
A56: "Alpha 56."
Dispatch: "Alpha 56, proceed to (address) to take a animal complaint. Caller states that there is a chicken in her garage and she doesn't know how it got in there. Caller states the chicken is not hers. Caller states that the chicken does not appear to be aggressive."
(long silence)
A56: "Re.... ceived. I'm enroute."
(another silence)
Dispatch: (coughs) "Copy Alpha 56."
