Fatal Attack on Appalachian Trail Prompts Revisions to Website on Matters of Safety

A fatal stabbing on the Appalachian Trail has led the nonprofit that manages the trail to revise its website for reporting safety issues and suspicious incidents. The Roanoke Times reports the Appalachian Trail Conservancy redesigned the website to include a bright red 911 button and other information such as online reporting forms. Conservancy communications manager Jordan Bowman says the changes prompted by the May slaying in Virginia makes the offered information clearer and easier to use.
