VOST - The Basics Presentation.
Virtual Operations Support (VOS) for emergency management & disaster recovery makes use of new communication technologies & social media tools.
A team of trusted agents lend support via the internet to those on-site who may otherwise be overwhelmed by the volume of data generated during a disaster.
VOS Teams (VOST) are activated to perform specific functions in support of affected organizations & jurisdictions. Each VOST has a Team Leader that reports directly to the affected organization/jursidiction.
Additional VOSTs may be established and activated to coordinate the work & maintain an effective span of control.
