Following Hurricane Sandy, the discussion has begun, as it always does after a major disaster - "Isn't there a way for responders to communicate location information in a standardized and efficient manner?" Indeed, it's a question volunteer firefighters in New York are pondering after a piece was recently published in the current issue of The Volunteer Firefighter, the official publication of Firemen's Association of the State of New York. Front and center in that discussion, the publication's first article about the U.S. National Grid. The link below will take you there:
(The Volunteer Firefighter, January-February 2013)
Comment: This article, like many on the subject in Emergency Services Sector publications across the nation, owes its existence to the exceptional efforts of Florida Firefighter, Al Studt. Great job Al, looking forward to more!
That's a good question to ponder, so that people know how to respond and rescue in situations like that. But let me just take my hat off to our volunteer firefighters who risked their lives rescuing those people during and post Hurricane Sandy.ReplyDelete
