Saying goodbye to an old friend
Effective November 12, 2016, the UWEM department and our 24/7 Duty Officer program, will no longer be using our old analog pager as a means of contacting staff during off-hours As have many other pager (or “beeper”) customers over the past few years, we found that this alternative communication mode is used very infrequently. With just 6 valid messages received over the past year, a decision was made to retire our pager. It is happily joining our growing collection of CD-ROM players, cassette recorders and flip-phones in the pending surplus department delivery!
If you had the old 206-797-0176 UWEM pager # in your contact list, please remove it. Of course, we still maintain our 24/7 Duty Officer cell #: 206-765-7192.
