We have been allowing a few of our partners access to this feature, we are now trying to roll it out to all members of the site.  So if you are out there are have some exciting photos or vidoes from an incident please share them with everyone.

We will make updates and changes as needed to make this as good as possible for all. So please give it a try and leave us some feedback.

This is mainly for current incidents, but we will consider some historical incidents. You can ask first by sending a PM or submit it for review.
