Instantly Informed: the First #SMEM-driven Training Exercise

03/19/2014 Comments 0

Adam Crowe, author of Emergency Management's Disasters 2.0 blog, brought in Nusura's SimulationDeck to add much needed realism to a first-of-its-kind exercise supporting the Toledo-Lucas County Advanced Practice Center. The unique exercise concept required participants to respond to an emergency scenario - a tornado that hit a nuclear power plant in northwest Ohio - using social media as their only tools.
The #SMEM exercise, called Instantly Informed,  was part of a longer seminar on social media's role in emergency management. The program and exercise were broadcast across the country to public health advanced practices centers and emergency management agencies.
