Free FEMA Course: Social Media in Emergency Management

Sections of this topic

    Great no-cost resource for crisis education

    One of the great things about the internet is the vast amount of knowledge available on any subject. Near and dear to our hearts, of course, is anything related to crisis management. Resources with quality content are always a welcome find, and we realized many people aren’t aware that FEMA offers a completely free course focus on social media in emergency management. While FEMA has taken a beating in the past, the organization took those hard lessons to heart and made its emergency management efforts both realistic and effective, making it a great source for information on how to handle ugly situations.

    There is always something more to learn when it comes to crisis management. We’ve checked out the FEMA course ourselves, and the information within is a solid resource for anyone looking to improve their emergency management capabilities.
