1. A system which communicates pollution information messages, comprising:

  • a first transceiver having a first identification code and coupled to a detector configured to detect pollution, the first transceiver in communication with a transceiver network, the first transceiver configured to generate a pollution information message and transmit the pollution information message to the transceiver network,the transceiver network further comprising;

    a plurality of network transceivers, each network transceiver having a unique identification code and configured to communicate the pollution information message with other network transceivers;

    at least one transceiver unit configured to communicate the pollution information message with at least one of the network transceivers, the pollution information message comprising information including pollution detector type, detected pollution levels, and pollution detector operational status;

    at least one site controller coupled to the transceiver unit, the site controller configured to communicate the pollution information message between the transceiver unit and an intermediary communication system wherein the pollution information message is communicated to a pollution monitoring management controller coupled to the intermediary communication system; and

    the pollution monitoring management controller comprising logic to redefine a communication path from the first transceiver to the pollution monitoring management controller if the pollution monitoring management controller does not receive a pollution information message from the first transceiver at a scheduled time or in response to a status inquiry.
