what i was told when they dispatch an engine you can respond. dispatch doesnt always knows how to tone out calls. that is something that you have to go on you own judgement. like the call at the water the other day she only toned it out for T-6 but i knew that we should have been toned out also. R-4 and Squad 51(and the boat) also went. but if its for an investigation then dont respond unless T-6 calls for us.
