What happens when you can't find the City Hall's Bible and you need to promote some firefighters to Battalion Chief and Fire Captain? If you're the Atlantic City Fire Department of Atlantic City, New Jersey, you grab an iPad and load up your favorite Bible app to complete the swearing in ceremony. Eight officers put their hands on the glass and metal device allowing the ceremony to be completed without much issue. We can't say for certainty that this is the first time that this has happened, but we'd also be shocked if we didn't see this happen more often in the future as digital media quickly replaces physical books.
