Help a firefighter wake up!

I'm a volunteer firefighter and we just changed our call alerts to texting. I also happen to be a heavy sleeper.

Basically I'll get a text in the middle of the night saying that there's a fire, and I need to go to the station. It will always be from the same number, so I can save the number as a contact and customize the text-tone. The problem is that I can't find a text-tone that will wake me up because of the short duration.

I was hoping I could: (in order of what would be best)......

A) Use a full length song as a personalized text tone from the phone number
B) Have a text tone that repeats over and over again
C) Find the loudest possible alert

Thanks in advance!
