Some just suck less. http://www.nj.com/news/gloucester/index.ssf?/base/news-0/104590500555170.xml "Butts said he often finds out about things like the change in the national threat level on CNN hours before the Communications Center receives a teletype about it." Butts is the Gloucester County Emergency Response Coordinator including the county 9-1-1 communications center. ISPs and other communication providers should be prepared to share information directly and quickly with each other. If you wait to hear from government officials to decide what sanitized information to share, it will be hours later. If ever.
