I was sitting here(at college) thinking about the alpha numeric pagers we have recently gotten. When the work it is nice, about a minute delay over the minitors but i got to thinking what is Next? Will we evently phase out all minitors and all go to alpha numerics? This is what i see( a REAL long time away) is that we will all end up having cell phones with the pager build into them, we will get the call as a text message, then, if we are going, we'll have a respond number on speed dial which will dial directly to the firehouse/firetruck, allowing the first ariving firefighters to the station to see what kind of personnel will be available, and thus can request additional alarms. What other ideas have people had that they for see in disbatching
