EMCOM building nationwide, neighborhood based Emergency Preparedness/Recovery network of Community Emergency Preparedness Coordinators|
Ultra-sophisticated, proprietary Instant Notification System is key to communications/coordination.
In concert with the calls to public service by President Bush, Office of Homeland
Security Director Tom Ridge, the "Call to Service" of Senator John McCain and Senator Evan Bayh, and governors across the nation, EMCOM is creating a
nationwide network of neighborhood based volunteers to aid their neighbors in
Emergency Preparedness. We make available the tools and direction to help
the volunteers get started in their neighborhood, and make available (free),
the instant communications system required to coordinate their
and provide instant notifications from federal, public and private agencies
of situations of which they need to be aware.
The program offers everyone the opportunity to be a part of the effort to
help our country in its current and future times of need. Volunteers need not
have any special training or experience. It is a perfect way for senior citizens and even the handicapped to get involved. Scouts, individually or whole
troops can participate as a community service bringing their first aid and
survival skills to their neighborhoods in an even more meaningful way.
Scouts can even team up with handicapped or senior volunteers with limited
mobility, with the scouts handling the legwork of collecting from, or
disseminating information to families in the neighborhood. Anyone with the
desire to help can become a part of the EMCOM team.
Creating a nationwide, neighborhood level Emergency Preparedness/Response
network for the over 28,000 cities and towns in the United States is a
monumental task. Effecting the coordination of Block/Community coordinators
itself requires a communications system capable of providing instant,
communications at every level; local, citywide, statewide and nationwide.
Government wants Emergency Preparedness
"block captains" nationwide; but such an undertaking requires a monumental
amount of coordination and communications capabilities. It will take months to define it, and more months
the build the bureaucracy, and then build the network.
But the EMCOM division of TLC has the means to
undertake this mission. With the help of the internet community, and utilizing our proprietary TLC/EMCOM Notification and Emergency
Warning System (NEWS),
we have the ability to use the internet to build a nationwide network of
Emergency Preparedness Coordinators in a matter of weeks. (If everyone
reading this would begin an email campaign to email everyone in their email
address book, maybe we can build it in days.)
EMCOM is a private organization that believes that we the private citizens can and should be taking our own initiatives to our own civil
preparedness. We need it now, and the internet community has the means to
quickly build an efficient, effective organization.
EMCOM already has the worldwide coordination/communication systems in place to
provide immediate notifications, bulletins and training from media and agencies
to community "captains" as well as the public in general, to help in
coordinating incidents or emergencies.
We are getting the jump on implementing such a network of community participants, and arming them with training, preparedness materials, and emergency notification communications. At such time as the officials in your state are capable of
either participating in the network, or in working with us to coordinate the network, we will make the functioning network available to the state or local agency.
If you would like to participate with us as a civil preparedness coordinator in your
community, you can fill in the registration form on this site. You will then
receive a system LOGON and PASSWORD to allow you access to the secure
communication/notification system. You will then only need to come to this
site any time you log in to the internet, log in, and a monitoring icon will
activate on your own computer. There is no hardware or software to
purchase or install. Your computer will then POP-UP windows on your
computer screen with notifications from various agencies as applicable. You
can still use your internet browser to surf the internet, or use other
applications on your computer. As long as you remain connected to the
internet, the monitor will remain active, and you will receive notifications or
bulletins within seconds of them being issued, including bulletins issued by the National Weather Service for your own area..
