Australasia-Pacific Disaster Management, Recovery and Emergency Communications Forum

This event will review the impact of social media to distribute emergency communications, as used in the Christchurch 2011 earthquake.

Participants will learn:

  • How accurate information disseminated changes disaster response by the general public to reduce risks, reduction, save lives and property, and speed up recovery
  • How to plan and control the flow of information before, during and after a disaster, defining an organisation’s credibility, trustworthiness, authority and effectiveness
  • The emergence of new social media plays an important role as “first informers” – witnessing who has the ability to transmit information immediately from the event (email, blogs, text messaging, mobile phone photos, etc.)
