Maybe spelling your keywords properly in google would help.

Basically what you need are three things.
a power supply (usually 12 V, try an AC adaptor)
a Pull station (the thing you pull to set off the alarm. you can use a switch) Check eBay, I bought a FireLite BG12 for $15 new! I also have some older ones if you want)
a signaling appliance (the actual alarm) you can get a 'horn' or 'horn/strobe' unit. I recommend the ones made by Wheelock. Those can also be found for cheap. There's also stand alone strobe units. I have a lot of extra ones that are new or like new, so let me know if you're interested in buying some. I can arrange payment via Paypal for security.
