then why is it still on the site if it is so "last year"?  I got 
there from the Township Protections Plans dropdown: Fires and 
Incidents. Seems that on other pages, the Warnings one is there, but 
not on this one at least. Looks like their CSS hasn't been updated 
properly throughout the site.

The reason I went there was to look at the protection plans. But each 
time I click on the link for the pdf files, I get from Adobe Reader:
The files is damaged and could not be repaired.

This is after I updated [twice] Adobe Reader to 9.x, thinking it was 
an Adobe 8 problem earlier in the day. If I save the pdf and open, it 
works fine. This is through using Firefox 3.5.7. Other pdf's open 
within FF just fine, but not these.

they don't provide an email address, just a bloody form, which I'll 
now fill out and advise of these additional problems.

BTW, what happened to the map? Or is that on DSE? Must have a look.
