Clubs, agencies, religious or fraternal organizations can recruit assistance. In other words, anyone can send a Smoke Signal and anyone with a phone can get the message!

Why a Smoke Signal instead of calling or e-mailing? ď ˝
To document results - After a Smoke Signal is sent you get a report including the text of the message, the time it was sent and the name and number it was sent to. To reduce expenses - Your staff will no longer need to make contact calls or to send reminders; reduce expenditures needed to pay postage; and you should experience far fewer missed appointments.
To ensure a bulletin is received - Because of the prevalence of quantities of “junk mail”, sometimes important messages can be accidentally overlooked. You may now send an ALERT to either a future message, or flag a recently sent message!
To save time - Instead of just sending an e-mail that may not be read immediately, send a voice SMS (text) that is often viewed as soon as it is received!
