Philippines text fire volunteers

Ladies and texters, a new SMS service has hit the streets…in the Philippines only. It’s called "Txt Fire" and it was was launched on Friday by the Association of Philippine Volunteer Fire Brigades of Davao City. It has already been working in Metro Manila, enabling citizens to send a text message to a hotline mobile phone number for help in case of a fire. Apparently, the dispatch system through text is the first in the world. To be a Txt Fire volunteer, one needs to register to a hotline number and a prompt reply message will tell you that you have become a volunteer and can report any fire. Good luck!
