What is the best way to set up a hotline number which forwards calls to multiple personal cell phones?

Suppose one wanted to acquire a phone number that would be publicized as a "hotline number." What is the best way to set up a system in which, when someone calls said hotline number, the call is directed to one of several participants via their individual cell phones?
Is there some device or service that can accomplish this? Bonus points if the call can be forwarded to each cellphone in turn until one of the cell-phone-wielding participants picks up (in some preestablished, or even schedule-based, order).
If anyone is particularly curious about the background info for this question, I'd be happy to post it.
