A little late to the game, but when I was going to high school and living at home my dad was a volunteer fire fighter of the ruralish' area we lived in. We had a pager in the house so that if somebody called in an emergency to the fire department/ambulance bay it would be transmitted to all the fire fighters and paramedics.
My bedroom was downstairs and often when up late at night gaming, I would run to the top of the stairs and listen to an incoming page. One night I just made it to the top of the stairs when the message started. It was an elderly lady just screaming "NO!!! NOOOOO!!!! OH NO OH NO NOOO!!" There was so much despair in her voice. Needless to say I didn't sleep well that night.
