Yes, yes, Jimmy, we get it, we should use social media for disaster situational awareness.

This article is a bit different, though. It tells of Craig Fugate using Twitter to identify the status of the #sanbruno fire and explosion. Not the huge emergency management infrastructure, not the media, but Twitter.

If the FEMA Admin is using these tools, what more justification do you need?

Very interesting post on including the disability community in preparedness planning. I especially like the paragraph on how truly inclusive preparedness needs to happen at the local and state level (this seems to be something I've been harping on lately). And the deaf CERT team? Brilliant!

The Chemical Accident TTX looked interesting. And both have fake news report videos (which I've always found ridiculously fun and feel that they add to the realism of the TTX).

I didn't know this FEMA IS course existed (though I've taken enough of them to not be surprised when several new ones pop up).

My biggest problem with it is the duplicative naming convention. This isn't a public health POD. It's designed as a drive-thru site that distributes water and food and is operated by the local EMA. I can't imagine the public information troubles that would arise in a dual disaster (explosion & anthrax or hurricane and disease outbreak).

Casual games are a great way to get folks to unknowingly learn things, so this is a really cool way of thinking outside of the box. Personally, I'm waiting for this game: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Disaster_Day_of_Crisis

Interesting little article in today's Delaware Online in the difficulty in setting up Citizen Corps groups today.

Got a Blackberry? Want FEMA information? Why not use one to get the other? Now you can. Bonus: Craig Fugate on video. =)

Some of the language used by the reporter is overtly political (the article being written in the Politico, it makes some level of sense), and it gets into the cattle roundup of Hill politics, but this is the first I'd seen of the possibility of FEMA running out of money for disaster relief.

Following up on my earlier post about ESF-8 typing, here's the presentation given by Ms. Duley and Dr. Salyers at the 2010 Public Health Preparedness Summit.
