In October 1998, John Morton and I produced one of the first WMD conferences in Washington, DC. Speaker after speaker proclaimed, 'Not if, but when!' That call lead to the establishment of DomesticPreparedness.com, formally registered with InterNIC on 11-November-98.
Since 1998, many things have happened. 9/11, the almost forgotten 10/11 (America's first bio-conflict), two overseas wars, and, the creation of a new Department, to name only a few. With these developments, the IMR Group, Inc. has evolved.
Over the course of the last two years, in addition to this ePublication, the group has developed and produced 10 printed First Responder Network inserts and one Property Management Network insert. We designed and built a trade show PAVILION that has exhibited to Emergency Managers in Illinois, New Jersey,Texas and Florida.
And now, it is time to mark DomesticPreparedness.coms fifth anniversary with a major upgrade. In addition to a much needed facelift, this dynamically served site is housed on a robust dual processing UNIX machine. We intend to take advantage of our newcomputing power, and continue to assist industry present their solutions to themany DomesticPreparedness communities responsible to protect, respond and prevent harm to our homeland.
Ideas, suggestions, comments and criticisms are alwayswelcome.
