The World Wide Web is filled with web sites dealing
with public service and emergency communication. Many sites
have "links" pages which list other emergency communication
sites. Here's a short list of some better pages for "links".
When you subscribe to a mailing list (also called a
reflector) you will be sent an email anytime another member of the list
posts a message to the group. It's a great way to exchange ideas,
discuss issues, and announce important developments.
