This Section Discontinued and Archived

In a nutshell, we barely have the resources we need to even keep a website up and running so we are emphasizing other sections at this time. As the header above says, we have free content expertise and free (but slow) web and server administration. But the support from the store and contributions has dwindled.

A long time ago, 15-20 years, this was a key section to the website and project. We were the first to do almost anything online, including posting advisories. The agencies that produce them had no idea how to use the internet at that time. For the most part they were amused by the idea, although we were actually threatened with a copyright lawsuit for continuing distribution of a public bulletin by one organization.

When we began we made as many advisories as possible available by email list-server. At first on a voluntary contribution basis, and then requiring a contribution. This service took a lot of work to provide, and now most agencies provide it directly. Usually by outsourcing it to a company specializing in email lists. Contributions from this service declined to a point where the work to maintain lists was no longer worthwhile.

Now it is twenty years after we started online and the advisories for all regions are well distributed and easy to locate on the web. We've let this section fall into disarray while debating what to do about it. At one time we thought it would be a good idea to create a map-based central global resource, but we do not have the resources to do this. At this time we will concentrate directly on the Education part of our mission and on our online Institute in particular. We will also try to maintain the unique Incidents section with it's large publicly available searchable database, although that is also behind at the moment.

You can help us continue our efforts, and maybe revive this section in the future by making a contribution, taking a course, and/or purchasing your equipment through our store. Your support is greatly appreciated!
