Kudos to Cleveland

As I was typing away at the State Preparedness Report for a client late into the night last night, I would check new blog posts while the FEMA web tool would save and load new pages (the PREPCAST portal was gruelingly slow as the deadline for every state is December 31st).  Every couple of hours, a new post would go up in the WordPress Emergency Preparedness category from the Cleveland, Ohio Public Safety Department as they updated readers on the weather, road conditions, snow removal, parking, and safety matters.  Essentially, they would provide a mini situation report for the public and include whatever information residents needed to know.

This is certainly a best practice and excellent utilization of a blog to provide up to date information.  Great job Cleveland!

How does your jurisdiction disseminate emergency information?
