Preparing for Volunteers in Disasters and Coordination with Voluntary Organizations APEC USA 2011 Emergency Preparedness Working Group (EPWG) 5th Senior Disaster Management Officials Forum September 22, 2011 San Francisco, California Heather Blanchard Co Founder, CrisisCommons www.crisiscommons.org heather@crisiscommons.org Twitter/Skype: @poplifegirl Share this presentation from www.slideshare.com/poplifegirl/ See Heather’s Notes from APEC USA at: http://tinyurl.com/3kvptql See Heather’s Tweets #apecusa11 from @poplifegirlThursday, September 22, 2011
  2. 2. Expanding Public Private Partnerships • Fundamental shift in societal communications • People are self organizing to support disasters • People are disconnected from the emergency management systems to help compass productivity • Social media is information. Information can be turned into data. Data at the right place and right time can help disaster officials make better decisions. • Partnerships of the future will need to include ad hoc communities and networks not just organizations. They will need to work to build an ecosystem where partnership efforts may overlap but strategic engagement is paramount.Thursday, September 22, 2011
  3. 3. Change is Hard http://dcist.com/2011/09/silence.php "Id rather be slow and right than fast and wrong," "Social media is for parties. We aint givin parties," - Lon Wells, Washington DC Fire Department Director of Communications “Most importantly, social media is imperative to emergency management because the public uses these communication tools regularly. Rather than trying to convince the public to adjust to the way we at FEMA communicate, we must adapt to the way the public communicates by leveraging the tools that people use on a daily basis. We must use social media tools to more fully engage the public as a critical partner in our efforts.” – FEMA Administrator W. Craig FugateThursday, September 22, 2011
