FIRE-RESCUE TVs NEED TO REMAIN ON 24/7

The Fire Rescue TVs need to remain on 24/7. I constantly find them off. When they are off the programming does not update overnight as the Media Player goes to sleep. Thus causing them to update while we are trying to use the internet during work hours.


THERE IS NO REASON TO SHUT OFF THE FRTV - PLEASE MAKE SURE THEY REMAIN ON!

FIRST DUE - WHAT WOULD YOU DO?
