FEMA Releases PrepTalk on Crowdsourcing and Citizen Science
Today, FEMA released Dr. Sophia Liu’s “Crowdsourcing and Citizen Science as Force Multipliers for Emergency Management.” In her PrepTalk, Liu highlights how social media can be an effective communication channel in disasters, how emergency managers can incorporate data provided by the general public into actionable intelligence during an emergency response and how citizens can assist with data collection, processing and analysis.

Liu is an Innovation Specialist at the U.S. Geological Survey Science and Decisions Center specializing in participatory science and innovation. She is also the Co-Chair of the Federal Community of Practice for Crowdsourcing and Citizen Science.

The PrepTalk video and additional resources are available on the FEMA website.

PrepTalks are a partnership between FEMA, the International Association of Emergency Managers, the National Emergency Management Association, the National Homeland Security Consortium and the Naval Postgraduate School Center for Homeland Defense and Security.
