Many firefighters try to avoid falling into deep sleep for fear of missing a call or being disoriented when awoken. 


They would feel more comfortable falling into deep sleep, knowing that  EaseAwake would alert them if a call came in (N. Evans, personal communication, February 27, 2019).

"Implementing ramp-up tones plays a role in improving perceived working conditions, and possibly the long-term health of emergency responders."
