VOST Presentation - The Basics

by Social Media for Emergency Management & Public Safety on May 09, 2012


VOST - The Basics Presentation. ...

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.

Disclaimer: This presentation is a conceptual description and may vary and be subject to change as per EM agency requirements.

Presentation by Scott Reuter and Caroline Milligan.

  • scottreuter ORVOAD at ORVOAD Thanks Kim. Next VOST presentation underway on details of activation and operation for a VOST. Not intended as a 'set in concrete' method of operation, but just to share how we've done some VOST instances, what seems to work well, and give people an idea of what happens and what resources and tools we've been using up to now. 1 year ago
