Wildfire Information Portal
Firewatchers will soon have the best of the Web at their fingertips, thanks to an upcoming site that promises to aggregate information from social networking sites such as YouTube and Flicker, as well as wildfire reports from the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), the InciWeb wildfire incident information site, and Geospatial Multi-Agency Coordination (GeoMac) wildfire support. This beta version gives a glimpse of how the NASA-funded effort will flow together to provide easy access to wildfire data.
Emergency Management Network
Emergency preparedness junkies might soon be able to leave MySpace and LinkedIn behind, now that there's a social networking site devoted to them. The Emergency Management Network community is just getting off the ground, but the site has areas for news, discussion forums, sharing photos and videos, blogging, and live chat.
