21. RadResponder

I’ve been playing in the emergency management sandbox for 47 years now, but continue to discover new or unfamiliar websites and resources nearly every week.  Last month I came across the RadResponder Network, a website managed jointly by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), the National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA) and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

The RadResponder Network concerns all unclassified things radiological.  It includes federal, state, local, tribal, industrial, medical and other partners with an interest in the use and/or misuse of radioactive materials.  Registration to use the RadResponder Network resources requires an email address from one of the organizations mentioned above.  Gmail, Yahoo, Roadrunner and similar email addresses can only be used on a temporary basis.

If you feel that you and your organization (police department, fire department, emergency management agency, hospital, etc.) would benefit from RadResponder Network membership, you may apply at the following website: http://www.radresponder.net/ .
