Umm... These are distributed to the APRS servers. This is part of the
"sea of blue" discussion that happened years ago, where the entire map
was covered in symbols and people complained. The result was the
formation of "Firenet", where we include such things and many more in
the APRS stream. My scripts are the ones collecting the stream gauges
and metering them out to Firenet. You merely have to connect to a
different set of APRS internet servers to see them.

If these could somehow be included in the APRS system for ARES/Emergency Services use, it could be quite helpful to the local community.
