    This sounds like an opportunity to use topic maps, ontology and other OHS/DKR
    specs for organizing the record. It supplements Henry's request for help with
    the Bootstrap web site. Both are good learning experiences for KM.

    Please join us in partnering with the Federal Emergency Management Agency
    (FEMA) in developing a National Knowledge System for Civil Defense and
    Homeland Security.

    The GKEC formed the *Volunteer Organization of Certified Knowledge
    Managers* (VOCKM) as a 501(c)3 and a NVOAD (National Organization for
    Assistence during Disasters) in complience with FEMA. American Red Cross
    is an example of a NVOAD. VOCKM has also joined the International
    Association of Emergency Managers to collaborate with other emergency
    management organizations worldwide.

    Starting next week, VOCKM will be working with the Emergency Management
    Agencies and cooperating with the American Red Cross in States, Counties,
    and Local governments to develop a common protocal and set of instructions
    about Anthrax. VOCKM is also developing an education program about Anthrax
    to be delivered to public and private organizations via eLearning and

    VOCKM will be driving the development of American National Standards. Over
    the next three months GKEC will be holding rapid development ANSI
    standards meetings in order to rapidly design of the National Knowledge
    System (Social and Technical). VOCKM is working with SAIC, Siemens,
    Boeing, Cisco, Northwestern University, the US Navy, EDS, and many other
    public and private organizations to expedite the standards process.
