emergency messages. The Internet is now just as a good option as the more traditional
means of emergency message delivery, such as telephone networks. However some of the

This Master's Thesis looks briefly at the pre-existing, so called the traditional

mentioned in the thesis are information safety, portability and compatibility with other
