Re: Pointer to clearinghouse for NY IT volunteers?
John, I'm not hearing much (out here in California), but the few points I know of are being tracked on: http://kgate.virtual.net/cgi-bin/wiki.cgi?action=Browse&id=TechAssistance Currently (2:58am PST, Sept 15) we have: -------begin snip--------------- Another Resource/Assistance Coordination page (Telehouse Europe based) http://www.sourcedest.org/resourcelist.rhtm Wall Street Technology Association coordination page http://www.wsta.org/forum/list.php?f=4 NANOG Archives, many offers to assist in NYC and elsewhere http://www.merit.edu/mail.archives/html/nanog/index.html Via NANOG: According to www.nysemo.state.ny.us which is the NY state emergency management center, the number to volunteer your time for the cause is 800-801-8092. They'll put you in a database with your name and phone number and expertise, which is available to the command posts. They particularly want firemen and medical people, but they seem receptive to everything. ------end snip-------- Please email us anything that you come up with that isn't listed above. We are working with other resource listers to share info. Thanks much!
