Firenet is two things.  It's the APRS-IS subnet server that Pete 
described and it's also an assigned ToCall prefix of APF.  
Unfortunately, not all APF prefixes are actually firenet.  There seems 
to be an undocumented APRS platform using APFDnn (from 01 through 91, 
non-contiguous) and another using APFRnn (specifically 38 and 67).

If you set an APRS-IS filtered feed to u/APF* -u/APFMET/APFIRE/APFH2O 
(or just u/APFD*/APFR*), you'll get these stations which seem to be 
mostly Fn prefix callsigns.  If anyone knows for sure (not just based on 
their comment) what these stations are running, it'd be nice to get it 
documented at http://www.aprs.org/aprs11/tocalls.txt
