FEMA's new Blog - more social media thanks to Craig Fugate

As I posted previously, I think social media is hugely important for helping emergency management connect with the general public in more than a trivial way. With Craig Fugate at the helm, FEMA is starting to get serious about using social media both to keep people informed and also as a way for themselves to find out what is going on. The latest is FEMA's new blog at Now if most government entities created a blog, I'd just think they did it because it was the trendy thing to do, but I think this one will actually be quite interesting (and encouragingly there are there posts there already).


  1. We think this is a really great idea. More emergency management organisations should follow their lead.
