Very interesting Diane. I am bookmarking this one so I can monitor the changes if and when they occur.

I'm trying to search around there to see "what's new."

Curious to see if they are getting on the Koskinen band-wagon for "community converstaions." And if so, how?

Will report back later.

No Changes on "that" FEMA for Kids Page:


I still think this is the strangest piece the .gov has on the web.

Quite an adveture, dig?

Was this on the site in December?


No one knows exactly what kinds of emergencies may be caused by the Y2K problem. John Koskinen, Chairman of the President's Council on Y2K Conversion, said he thinks the country's basic infrastructure will work and there will be no major nationwide disruptions But he said there may be a need for federal response in some areas.

A Y2K scenario, for example, could cause scattered disruptions in critical systems such as traffic control, communications, or power, which would complicate local, state and federal efforts to provide disaster response. FEMA is working now to be prepared and to help the whole country be prepared. To find out what you can do, click here.

OK Mikey,

A good laugh for sure, but do words like "scenerio," "infrastructure," and "federal response," mean to the average 5, 6, 7, and 8, year old. Let's forget Johnny five for a minute and move on to "Brittany, La'tosha, Seth, and Darnell.

Did anyone see this page when it came on-line?
