Washington, D.C. - Nov 28, 2006 - The First Response Coalition (FRC) has unveiled an interactive 50-state map of the United States designed to provide residents in every state instant access to up-to-date local public safety news and information. The map is online at www.firstresponsecoalition.org/map.
The FRC map provides residents, first responders and policymakers with customized state-specific information on public safety news and developments, first responder contacts and actual locations. Visitors can enter their ZIP code and locate the closest fire station, read state-specific news about first responders, access via Web links first responder and homeland security agencies in their community, and view emergency weather alerts for their neighborhood. Over the next several months, the FRC plans to add more state-specific information to the website.
