Use FreePBX to convert SIP extension call to Multicast Page

Hi everyone. I have a third party phone system that is cloud hosted therefore I am unable to use multicast paging. I have a fire alarm linked to a SIP extension that makes a call with an automated message, I would like to forward that call to an extension which automatically picks up the call and broadcasts it on the LAN.
Is there a way of setting up FreePBX to log in as an extension and auto answer and convert any call it receives direct into a multicast page?

Thanks, Graham

At the FreePBX end you would treat this as a trunk. Set the contact URI to be a pseudo-DID and configure that to route to your paging number.

(SIP doesn’t actually have distinct extension and trunk concepts, so treating it as a trunk is not as weird as it may seem.)
