I think it’s the same message as the 4100 series.

I don't know if there is a transcript around anywhere but if everything still works I can come up with a recording after the Christmas holiday.

I believe this is from a 2001. You don't get to hear the complete message, but it does have that cassette tape sound to it. Alarm starts at 4:45

Did you hear about the film director who collected fire alarms?

This could also be it, at least judging by the 3 beeps.

(yes, even though that's the wording of the default EST message)

Isn't it a possibility that two companies could use the same evacuation message instead of having to come up with their own every single time?

Notifier recorded their own messages and tones in MP3 format for the DVC. And if you need custom messages you can record using Goldwave software. I have had to make custom mass notification messages on a few different jobs before.

But do some companies sometimes share voice evac messages?

You are correct. The three beeps are DTMF tone 1 (like when you push the 1 key on a telephone). The speakers also for some reason generate a 60hz mains hum.

Here is a recording of a 2001 system audio evac message. The equipment is a 2001-6005 Oscillator Control with Pre-amp Mixer (OCPM). The voice section is from a 2001-6068 digital message player which was the replacement for the cartridge tape player. The digital player is the same size as the original tape player and is plug compatible with the other equipment. No modifications were needed to replace the tape player with the digital unit.

The recording was made by direct wire connection from the OCPM output to an audio input on a laptop. That makes a clean recording without speaker to microphone acoustic effects.
