I'd probably recommend implementing some sort of parent/child system
to reduce the number of messages you receive.  Couple that with an
acknowledgment syetem to re-page every so often to remind you, and it
works out really well.  That way you're not overloading the person
receiving the alerts, and, especially with SMS, it costs less to send
