There is a way to subscribe to a forum so that one gets an email when a new post is made in it - simply use the "subscribe to this forum" option from that forums main page.

Unfortunately some testing indicates that this email isn't exactly immediate, which would negate the intention. I'll look into the forum code and see if this email can be forced to go out immediately when a post is made.

Alternately we (the staff) could just do a member email blast when warranted - it's apt to be a pretty small knit community here and I don't think anyone would mind this if its a true emergency?

You know, regarding emergency lists we've done this on a motorcycle forum I belong to. What was done there was a special "list" with people willing to lend assistance. Those willing would list their location, phone and what assistance they can offer. The forum was only visible to confirmed members (those positively genuine people... not spammers or advertisers), guessing they place confirmed members in a group. It's seemed have worked well. Though I've never used it personally, I've yet to hear of any abuses and there are thousands of members, but I'm sure it'd largely be dependent on the member base.

The phpbb software we used to build the site is freeware so it has some limitations. As far as I have been able to find out we cannot get it to auto notify other than if you are subscribed to the thread and that still has bugs in it.

Might add 210 to the 220 section as well.. or make it one of its own?

I ran that by 69210 as he is the only member so far with one and we decided to just make the 220 forum for that as well. :D if you find one and want your own sub forum let me know.I can add a separate forum for the 210 or do a sub forum under the 220.

Sounds good. I figure what info I do discover I can put under there for my own or others use.
