NYC Medical Reserve Corps "Using Social Media for Emergency Preparedness and Response"
Tuesday, June 25, 2013 from 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM
New York, NY
The exponential growth of social media users combined with the smart phone use has fundamentally changed how the public and government gathers and communicates information, particularly during an emergency. Social media tools allow emergency managers to disseminate information to wider audiences, interact with the public, monitor social media networks to get better situational awareness and improve information sharing during an emergency. This training will introduce useful resources, show how social media is being used for preparedness and response, and show some of the powerful tools anybody can use to stay informed. There will also be hands on exercises, so bring your smart phones and laptops!
Dinner and registration will begin at 5:30pm
