A Parisian fire truck passes about 150 feet away and briefly turns on its siren to make sure nobody overlooks it.
Emergency vehicles in France have either two-tone or three-tone sirens. Vehicles to which one must yield the right of way, such as fire trucks, use the two-tone siren. The three-tone siren (not on this recording) is used for vehicles that do not require drivers to yield but should still be given some priority.
Recorded with a Zoom H4n hand-held, stereo 96 kHz / 24 bits, built-in mics, about 150 feet away from the passing truck
