Australia To Use Social Networking Sites For Bushfire Warnings [news.bbc.co.uk]
Australia is to use social networking sites such as Facebook and Twitter to give people early warning of bushfires.

Victorian state premier John Brumby says social networking sites on the internet will help to improve advice to households.

"We'll be providing more information to the community, like Twitter and Facebook - alternative means of communication to get the information out to the public," Mr Brumby said.

Hope they all use satellite broadband, and not flammable POTS lines. ;)

Agreed. Wireless would probably be a better way to get the signal out in a situation like that. ;)

The point is that they'd be supplementing their normal communication channels with these services. It certainly wouldn't hurt to add SNS to the mix.
