from  http://www.linuxjournal.com/article/3529
Here's an example of a timed reminder:

REM Mon Tue Wed Thu Fri AT 17:00 +15 *3 MSG Go home!

The AT keyword introduces an AT clause.   The 17:00 means that the
trigger time is 5:00 PM. The +15 means Remind starts carping at you
fifteen minutes ahead of time, and the *3 means it annoys you every
three minutes. 

so i think you want

REM AT 12:00 +120 *30 MSG check fire
