There will be a class this thursday pertaining to “Using Social Media in Disasters”. I plan to attend and will take as many volunteers as I can haul. We must register you online, so let me know right away if you would like to attend!

The course will provide participants with the knowledge and skills of social media and its uses, as well as the current tools, methods, and models to properly make use of social media for crisis communication. Participants will take part in facilitator-led activities. Through the use of social media tools, participants will learn and master skills to disseminate information and monitor, track, measure, and analyze social media traffic. Participants will be able to use social media as a method to identify warning signs that a crisis is developing. REQUIREMENTS: Participants will be required to bring their own laptop (preferably) or wi-fi enabled device to the training session for the hands-on exercises.
We are working on the website and adding some social media feeds to our system. Please let me know if you have ANY photos from our past. This would include meetings, trainings, exercises or disaster responses related to OEM, CERT, SAR or MRC. Any photos would be appreciated. We would also love to have any video clips. We are working on making a photo gallery on the website and possible using some of the photos to create banners for the website.
Any help would be appreciated.
We left the land-nav course setup. If anyone is interested in additional training ths Thursday evening, October 17th, please let me know.
