Wednesday, Sept. 8, 2010 Feather River Bulletin PDH still looking for pager service provider Joshua Sebold Staff Writer jsebold@plumasnews.com Plumas District Hospital is currently looking for a way to replace its pager service, pre- viously provided by USA Mo- bility. The communications com- pany pulled out of the eastern part of the cotinty in January. A company spokesperson said, "It had cost us more to provide service to the area than the revenue we received for providing the service." Several customers, like Eastern Plumas District Hos- pital and Plumas-Sierra Rural Electric Cooperative, report- ed they got no warning from the company that their emer- gency communications sys- tems would no longer work. Perhaps the company learned from the backlash that experience caused, as PDH Safety Officer Steve Tolen reported thecompany was in close contact with his agency's information technol- ogy unit in the time leading up to a similar endto service in the Quincy area. He said it seemed the com- pany had been "better to us than the people on the east side of the county." Tolen said Quincy pager coverage went down in July and he has been working with another company that ex- pressed interest in providing the service. Tolen said the hospital usu- ally has around 50 pagers in use at any one time. He said PDH preferred pagers to cell phones because its employees live all over the place and the pager service used to allow people to roam down the Canyon or as far as Cromberg without worrying about missing an emergency notification. The Plumas County Mental Health Department stopped using pagers after the Eastern Plumas coverage went away and has adapted to using cell phones. Director John Sebold said the current situation was working but he would prefer to have pager service back "because it lends for flexibili- ty for people in their lives." By all accounts, the previ- ous pager system covered many more areas than even the best cell phone providers, which allowed on-call or emergency workers to travel throughout the county will little concern about missing an important call. Organizations such as the mental health department, the East Quincy Service Dis- trict, and the Quincy Commu- nity Service District are in- trigued by the idea of rein- stating pager service, but on- ly use one or two pagers in their agencies, They don't have an incentive to put a lot of resources into the effort and won't bring a large cus- tomer base to a provider. Other agencies moved on from the pagers before these recent events and haven't looked back. Plumas County Sheriff's Of- fice Deputy Mike Grant, the department's resident com- munications expert, con- firmed that he's been talking with Tolen about the issue, as they work together on vari- ous emergency communica- tion topics. The sheriff's office has ad- ministered various communi- cation grants and programs over the years, many of which were multi-agency collabora- tions with the county health department, fire departments, hospitals and others. Grant said his agency moved away from pagers for several reasons. He said if a user misses a page, it's gone; whereas a cell phone text message will be de- livered to his phone when he gets into service. It doesn't disappear if he's out of range when it's sent. He said another benefit was the ability to receive a text message out of the county or state. Grant said he's been dri- ving home from RenD or Chico, received a text mes- sage and responded to an inci- dent. The deputy said most of the people in his department lived within coverage of a cell phone, which made things easier. "Steve (To!en) has people on La Porte Road and Gene- see Valley," places not known for reliable cell phone cover- age. "There's not one fit-all an- swer for this," he concluded. "It's very complicated." Meanwhile, Tolen marches on, looking for mountaintop properties with owners he hopes are willing to volunteer to house a small transmission tower for free, although he added PDH was willing to help with a little rent money if necessary. He said the transmitter was surprisingly small but re- quired power, room for a backup generator and prefer- ably a phone line, which al- lows technical support work- ers to assess problems digital- ly without driving up the mountain every time some- thing goes wrong.
