Participatory Fire Department

In participatory journalism, citizens combine their efforts to produce or display data that is otherwise unavailable. Well, it seems the Los Angeles Fire Department is doing something similar, in posting pictures from the scene. This is a little different, in that they’re not ordinary civilians, yet it provides many of the same benefits, plus they’re guaranteed to be on every scene. (I don’t know if they actually take pictures at every scene.)
