Frequently Asked Questions
- What is RSS ?
RSS stands for "Really Simple Syndication." It is a standard format used to share content on the Internet. Many websites provide RSS "feeds" that describe their latest news and updates.
- How can I use RSS?
You can use RSS to review updates from all of your favorite websites without having to visit each site. Using an RSS reader, you subscribe to the feed from a website, then scan headlines to find articles of interest. If you find an article you like, click the headline to read the complete article. You always have the latest headlines because your RSS reader periodically retrieves the RSS feeds.
- Where can I get an RSS reader?
You can use an online RSS reader, which works from any web browser, or you can download software that runs on your computer. Some RSS readers are free, and some are available for a fee.
FEMA RSS feeds are provided free of charge for commercial/non-commercial use by individuals and organizations.
- Can I display FEMA headlines on my website?
Yes, FEMA headlines may be displayed on your Web site.
