Helping to find missing people. Hopefully we will never have to meet except for training. Please post your phone number in your profile so we can contact you if neeed. As more people join, we will setup a phone tree to get the word out. I will attempt to make EVERYONE an asistant organizer in order to allow for open communication. DO NOT ABUSE THIS. This site is to be used for emergencies and training only. PLEASE respect this.

Thank you.
