Question Feed Alerts

Alright so I know we can set feed alerts for incidents that are occuring. My question is, what is the minimal requirements for it to be set as an alert? Like what is acceptable? I don't want to put up things that are deemed by the admins to be not worthy of an alert and then get in trouble.

Here is a small list of things that im not sure if they are acceptable, let me know if they are:
Chimney Fire
2 Car Mva with injuries
Car into building
Search for lost hikers
Rollover accident
Traumatic Injury with or without Medevac helo


Thank you

Alright. Ive read that but how noteworthy are we talking? Like something may seem noteworthy to one person but to another it may not be. I just do not want to go getting myself in trouble for putting an alert and it not being "up to par".

Personally, I only put info up in regards to major incidents, I.E. structure fires, major accidents where traffic will be impeded, major law incidents (I.E. break-in, chase, etc) something that is worth listening to. Not the fire department going to the same place 10 times a day for an AFA like here...lol

Just use POTUS, which seems to be the standard used on milcom forums.
