Very useful devices these pager thingys. When your iPad sets fire to the iPod and you have to use your iTouch to Skype the fire services, the volunteers will respond to their pagers beeping. Same with the Ambos (although they get more details on their truck screen) and other emergency services.
Should I leave my pager at your front door next call or you ok with fire fighting dorks? Oh, does your iPad (currently billowing smoke at 3am) allow you to reply you are turning out, even if there is no wireless/mobile signal? Hmmm Hmmm???
