The Expanding Use of Social Media in Disaster Preparedness and Response

The world communicates online. For many people, the first they will learn or hear of an important news event or incident is through their computer or mobile device. Those in the emergency preparedness and response community—from elected officials and non-profits to the media and the military—are realizing that social media has the power to transform the way emergency communications and operations are managed before, during and after the event. Or does it? What are the opportunities and limitations for how responders can use social media during an event? Has it been done successfully yet? If so, what are some of the lessons learned from these efforts? How is the traditional emergency response community adapting to the social media world? What are the emerging legal, political, and resource challenges?
