Alerts and Warnings...

How can we hosts send out alerts and warnings? I am especially concerned about guests who email me through this site about their imminent arrival and then fail to show up and fail to notify me. I would like to send out a question to members traveling near my location if they have information about that rider? We should have guidelines for the use of such alerts. I would like to serve on an online committee of hosts to create such guidelines.

The purpose is to protect riders. We recently had a rider approaching our location forced off the road and threatened by a driver by pointing a gun at the rider. The rider was so shaken s/he had to hole up until confidence was regained. That is unacceptable and other riders and hosts should know of such a threat and local hosts should report to a wider distribution than the local authorities.

I have been communicating with Jack Turner, Help Desk Manager. He assures me that such a system of notification exists, but it is not easily accessed nor advertised. I will soon check out the system he told me about and will communicate my findings to the forum. Thank you for your question.
