How to use the ALERT topics
« on: July 23, 2016, 06:11:37 PM »
We currently have five "ALERT" topics in the Current Severe Emergency Situations board:

ALERT: Active shooter & multiple homicide incidents, United States
ALERT: Active shooter & multiple homicide incidents, outside the US
ALERT: Natural and industrial disaster emergencies
ALERT: Civil disturbance emergencies
ALERT: Miscellaneous emergencies

The purpose of these topics is to keep our members informed with urgent information about current emergency incidents.

  • Brief announcements and informative links about new emergencies that are currently in progress.
  • Urgent updates only (for example: the emergency has worsened significantly, or the emergency is over).
  • Links to other topics on TSP Forum where the incident is being discussed in detail.

  • Discussion or speculation.
  • Minor updates.
  • Followups after the emergency has ended.
Instead, please use a separate topic dedicated to the specific incident.  Start one yourself if it doesn't exist yet, and post a link to it in the appropriate ALERT topic.  (If you don't know how to post a link to a topic, just click "Report to moderator" at the bottom of your own post, and we'll be glad to do it for you.)

If you want to receive e-mail notifications when someone posts in the ALERT topics (or in any other topic on the forum), click the "NOTIFY" button at the top of the thread.
