05/21/12 166 W - + 2 - 6 Morning Reading List?

Been a while since we asked this question. What's your morning reading list look like, for fire and emergency services web sites? These days, my daily fare consists of these four:

Plus local news media, looking for stories on same: WRAL, WTVD, News14, News & Observer. Less frequently visit Firehouse, the Firehouse forums, FireCritic, and smaller local news sites like Cary News, Eastern Wake News, Midtown Raleigh News, and the Wake Weekly. The latter local rags get hit a couple times a week, usually midweek.

Also watch Facebook for posted links that catch my eye, including the frequent link posts from both FireNews.net and HPFirefighter.com.The latter, which started as an unofficial High Point Fire Department site, has also started aggregating fire news in recent months. Also have Google alerts which send daily e-mail with links to newly posted (or newly indexed) web pages that mention "Raleigh Fire Department."


My daily stuff is not necessarily EMS/fire related. However, I do have a daily, every few days, and weekly routine…

Daily- WRAL, WTSB, CNN, Firegeezer, Military.com, various stuff from Facebook posts, updates from my Reading List on the 9-ECHO-1 site.

Every few days- News and Observer, various Flickr sites, Jems, EMS1.com, FireRescue1.com

Every week or so- Dustoff.org, Army Times.

Blogs that I hit regularly- Other than Firegeezer, they include Legeros Fire Blog, Day In The Life Of An Ambulance Driver, Too Old To Work Too Young To Retire, The Happy Medic, Burned Out Medic, Dr. Wes, Rogue Medic, Prehospital 12-Lead, The EMTSpot, and a few others.
