Social Media in Emergency Response
 
As the East Coast was experiencing an earthquake and then a hurricane, thousands of web watchers were tuning into a Facebook talk with representatives from the American Red Cross, the National Weather Service, and the Department of Health and Human Services on emergency preparedness and the use of social media during emergencies. A infographic depicts findings from an American Red Cross survey about current trends in this realm.

This is a good reference point for PR people seeking to gain emergency response expertise.
