Fire Stations have what is known as a 'Running Call' phone outside which connects you to the control room. I assume the police and ambulance stations do too. 

Although in these days of mobile phones I doubt they have much use. Where I am at the moment (pub) is about 100m from the fire station, but I would use my mobile if I needed the fire brigade.
