Outlook public calendar for support staff that alerts with reminders

Hi everyone.  I am trying to set up a public calendar for a couple of support staff we have in our office.  I want this calendar to be accessible to everybody who would need this support, and want to attach this calendar to said support staff's accounts.  I have figured out how to "Favorite" the calendar so it shows up adjacent to their personal calendars, but I can't figure out how to make it buzz/alert you when a calendar event is coming up.  Does anyone know if there is a way to do this?  We are running Exchange 2007, with Office 2007 and 2010 on the support staffs' machines...

As an alternative, I also tried creating a full "Support Account" in Exchange that I simply attach to both of their normal Exchange accounts. Once I allow both of their user accounts access to this Support Account, it is easy to attach it to their respective normal accounts.  BUT, the calendar function still doesn't alert/remind them of upcoming events (new e-mails also kind of sneak in, without any mini-windows/new mail sounds coming up).

Are either/both of these possible?

Thanks for your time guys! -Dylan B.

There is no really supported way to make this work. Outlook only responds to the primary calendar. However there is some blog discussion here that may help you with a workaround:
