  • Thanks to the users of the usenet-newsgroups misc.emerg-services and, where most of the information is from. If possible, the author of the original information (where we got it from) appears right above it. If you don't want your answer or your name to appear herein, drop a note to the FAQ-manager. Since all FAQ-info was taken from public sources, it is assumed that the authors dedicated it to the public, which is true in this FAQ, too. Some statements were victims of editing by me (due to better understanding & context), I hope to be careful enough in saving the original intentions.

  • Some special thanks goes to (and some of them probably won't know why):

    and others i've lost in the deep mists of my mind or my computer's file system...

NOTES: My thanks to the folks at CoolWriter, who originally started converting the FAQ to HTML format. The background and title graphic were developed by them for the Emergency! web pages at the Hyattsville VFD web site. Although they never did finish converting it to HTML, their start saved me tons of work! As such, I will maintain links to their web sites below.
