Emergency Information - Where to find?
Today right after turning onto a major highway I met two county sheriff vehicles traveling at a high rate of speed. Soon after I met an ambulance and then a fire truck. As I proceeded to my destination, I met numerous local emergency personnel heading in the same direction. After concluding business in a nearby town, I saw a state police vehicle and a second ambulance traveling at a high rate of speed in the same direction as all other vehicles. As I neared my turn to exit the highway, I noticed that the intersection that I had used previously had now been closed off and all traffic redirected.

Naturally, I wondered what was up and took to the internet to see if there was any information available. I could not find anything current and wondered what if this was a terrorist attack or some other clamity, how would people know in time to respond appropriately?

Is there a site where emergency information is available as it happens or do we still have to wait until it shows up in a daily paper?

CB radios have gone out of fashion, now we have cell phones that you can't use while driving, that connect to only one other phone and a press that is mostly entertainment value oriented.

The sheep need not be concerned, as you so apply observed, the professionals have it all under control.

You get an app for your phone that is a scanner, or some sheriff and local police have an app. I am not sure how good they are, but they do exist. Or just get a scanner
