Just launched: The Emergency 2.0 Wiki

Ever wanted to have a free resource where all the best information on the use of social media for emergency situations was collected, edited and provided online ?

Well, I am very proud to be part of this group of volunteers who did just that; the Emergency 2.0 Wiki just launched globally.

The Emergency 2.0 Wiki is a free global resource available to all through the ongoing input of professionals from across all industry sectors.

This new collaborative model aims to facilitate global sharing and advancing knowledge on utilising web2.0 and social media in emergency management.

 

It is a voluntary initiative of the Gov 2.0 QLD Community of Practice. Its impetus was to leverage the learnings from the use of social media during the devastating floods and Cyclone Yasi that swept across Queensland early in 2011.
