    "That comes from the old GameWell Box Alarms on telephone post. Before radios, the Chief would instruct his Chauffer to go to a box and tap in two taps then eleven taps. That would tell dispatch to pull a second. Then if needed you could tap in 3 then 11 for a third alarm. Once the fire was out, you would tap in 7-1 to tell dispatch the fire was out, hence 7-1 this location."

    4-alarm hi-rise fire in Houston with reported mayday. At least 5 firefighters hurt. Standpipe issues.
