[fblike]Another gadget from CES that may be of interest to those in the emergency services is the inexpensive SPOT Communicator. The little device connects via Bluetooth to your smartphone and allows you to call for help, update Facebook and Twitter, send global satellite messages and transmit your coordinates from anywhere.
Whether you’re on a US&R team doing recon work, wilderness firefighters who have lost radio communication, or a canine search team who has lost cell coverage, this could the inexpensive device that can make or break your operations.
Sure, today’s smartphones are great for communicating. But when cell service goes down after a tornado, hurricane or earthquake the phone is worthless (unless you want to play Angry Birds). The SPOT Connect will keep you in touch with friends, family, and emergency personnel. Simply pair your smartphone with SPOT Connect, and get connected to a global satellite network that lets you send messages and GPS coordinates from virtually anywhere on the planet. Update Twitter and Facebook. Send email and text messages. Request non-emergency help from professional service providers. And in the case of a critical emergency, send an SOS message requesting emergency assistance.
