  • In need of a pager.

    Hello, I was just wondering if anyone would have or know of someone that has a fire pager for sale. There is currently a waiting list for the fire pagers at our department. Obviously the juniors are at the bottom of the list. I'm not expecting a brand spanking new pager either. I was thinking of a used one, but have had no luck buying them.

    My fire frequency is 33.800 or 33.860


    Thanks

    you could also look for a used scanner, or new one, from ebay, radio shack, wal mart etc.

    Just a suggestion

      I already have a scanner. But I had lugging the thing around. Another problem that I have is that I don't wake up if we get a call in the morning or something.

            In need if a pager

            OK i have question why does a junior need a fire pager no disrespect but can you respond to calls in your POV, do you have any certifications that will allow to fight fire or help someone? and why do you really need a fire pager.

              Chill out.

              If he wants to buy a pager, it's not up to you to decide if he needs it or not. Looking at your username, you're an Explorer...Back off.

                My post is supposed to have pagers. We just haven't bought new batteries for them yet. One of our guys does have a pager (RFRDxplorer), just not the rest of us... yet. Hope to soon though.
                Why? For listening. Exact same thing you do with a scanner but it's mobile just like Marc said. No, we can't respond in our POV and I don't have any certs other than CPR.

                  I am an explorer, but am the only one on the post that has one. I wear it around town. There are times to wear it and time to not.

                        Geez. I didn't mean to get flamed so much.. I was just asking a question. And what does a junior need a pager for? Well let's see. I would like to answer as many calls as I can. I need the experience. A perfect example was the other day about me not hearing it. It was about 6 o'clock in the morning and we got toned out for a possible structure fire. ( Kitchen Fire ) nothing big, but still. I could have went and learned something,.

                          I'm not protesting. It's deffinately a good idea. It would be cool if I had mine but I don't really need it because we can't respond like you can.

                            Look for a minitor two or something they arent too much money.

                            Also, just out of curiousity how do juniors and explorers respond to a call if you cant drive... by the time you get there on like a bike i would hope your truck already left...

                              at my stationwe are given pagers, but if you read my other post, youll see that beyond involved structures, anything is fair game. so as long as its not structure, we actually full firemen.
