    Fire alarm. Please evacuate. This is not a drill.

    Sounds like a collision warning at sea.

    Or prepare to dive, which is usually a bell, not a horn.

    To me, it sounded like birds chirping into a very low-quality microphone.



    Then, it sounded like a very distant fire alarm.

    Actually its a good microphone. The audio was originally recorded in 24 Bit 96khz quality. Its just YouTube and other services compressed it to the point of sounding like crap.

    So what really is the point of this thread? Other than the obvious.

    It's a building fire alarm.

    Could've been set off by any number of things.

    If you'd have looked at the building the sound was coming from, even from the outside, you'd have seen the strobes going off.

    And those bright vehicles with ladders on them are not roofers.
