MedlinePlus® Go Local Sites Can Quickly Create and Post Emergency Response Pages
[Editor's note added on May 20, 2010: Go Local hyperlinks have been removed. For more information see NLM® to Discontinue Support of MedlinePlus® Go Local.]
A s of May 13, 2009, Go Local areas using the NLM® -hosted input system can quickly create and display a page with emergency response information. Staff at each Go Local site decide if and when to use the Emergency Response Page. They can tailor the content of the page as appropriate to the situation, and can link to the general services for disaster preparation and recovery listing that is already available on the site. Go Local sites may prepare Emergency Response Pages in advance for situations common to an area, such as hurricanes in Texas.
When activated, a link to the Emergency Response Page appears in an alert banner on the site's header (see Figure 1). Go Local project staff can display the banner on all pages on the site, or only on the homepage.
