Social Media in Emergency Management
One Hour Breakout
The world of public safety is one of constant staffing issues. These issues in collaboration with the rising populations and tools available to emergency managers make the decision to utilize social media a difficult one. The widespread use of social media by the masses also argues to the point for the use of social media in emergency management. As a former volunteer Social Media specialist assigned to the Texas Department of Emergency Management Disaster District 4 (Garland), Jason utilizes this presentation as a case study approach to identify the influence of social media within the role of emergency managers and how it was utilized during a major real-world incident regarding the Dallas Ebola response in October 2014. It also dives into the real world use of a Virtual Operations Support Team (VOST) and some of the challenges they face. The presentation utilizes data from documented research, hands on participation, the distribution of surveys and interviews determining the viability of using social media platforms in emergency operations.
