“ social media can augment communications in disaster. The public can personally use Twitter to do welfare checks and allows people to employ social media to relieve stress on emergency service providers. It is time for governments to carry the preparedness message torch while incidents are fresh in society’s mind. It is also a time to prove to any doubters that the correct use of social media can do more good to citizens than harm to the agencies using them.” – emergencycommunicationsnetwork.com
