Course Description
Status:
FEMA Certified
Description:

This course is designed to provide participants with the knowledge and skills to use intermediate social media tools and techniques for situational awareness during an emergency. Participants will learn and use tools such as mapping applications, data analysis, and data mining for research and management. It aims to reach public and private sector organizations who have responsibility for conveying disaster-related information to the public or who are responsible for gathering information during and after a disaster.

The course will supplement and build upon NDPTC’s existing FEMA-certified performance-level course, PER-304 Social Media for Natural Disaster Response and Recovery, by providing more in-depth training in the use of social media for disaster management operations.

This could include the members or representatives of the following groups:

  • Community Emergency and Community Response Teams such as neighborhood organizations or community associations, and various response teams who have communication needs before, during and after a response.
  • State, county and local emergency management agencies.
  •  NGOs and other agencies such as the Red Cross or United Way.
