Today, as part of its preparation and support for NPM 2011, Nigel Snoad, Crisis Response Product Manager for Google, announced that Google is introducing a new Google Crisis Preparedness website with information and educational tools to help utilize technology in preparing for crises.
Additionally, a new public preparedness website — Get Tech Ready — is now available for disaster preparedness teams to incorporate into their pool of available resources. This new site was developed as collaboration between FEMA, the American Red Cross, the Ad Council and the Google Crisis Response team. There, you’ll find tips on using technology to prepare for, adapt to and recover from disasters.
Check these new resources out today, and, pass this information along to those first responders, crisis management, disaster preparedness and recovery team members in your organization.
If applicable, also offer this information to those PS-Prep compliance planning and/or risk management team members in your organization.
