Social Media: Changing the Face of Response


Published on

Presentation at the 2014 Disaster Preparedness Academy. We’ve all witnessed the power and immediacy of social
media in emergency response and influencing world
events. It is imperative that organizations have a social
media strategy in place for emergencies. This workshop will
discuss why social media is viewed as a critical element
in crisis response using real-world examples such as
Superstorm Sandy and the Boston Marathon. Participants
will learn about common social platforms, and how they can
be incorporated into disaster planning. Tools, resources and techniques will be shared that will help organizations build an online presence now that will play a vital role when the next disaster occurs.
