    You actually do have community and emergency managers watching your channel. I'm a volunteer with Kent County Search and Rescue, and while this popped up in my feed since I'm subscribed, it also got posted in our Slack group by our RACES coordinator. I think it's a fantastic idea, and it caught our eye today and might not have if it wasn't for this video.

    lol. I did this using arduino for my graduation project. It was relatively easy to do it, and we created rooms so everybody talks to each others.
    Guess what was the first sentence sent:
    simply "send nudes", and everybody laughed so hard hhhh

    Remember when your mobile phones had no special function beyond mms and am/fm radio with battery life that lasted for up to 7 days idling on one charge ?

    Part of me wants to be in the emergency management meeting where the first person gets to use the iconic line, "We're Ducked" just after deploying this solution.
