DHS and NGA Social Media Workshop
The DHS/NGA Social Media Working Group developed out of a two-day workshop, “Identification of Key Knowledge Gaps in Social Media Use During Disasters,” sponsored by the Department of Homeland Security Science & Technology Directorate and the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency July 22-23, 2013. The workshop looked at current uses of social media during disasters and social media research being conducted by universities. Users of social media from disaster response agencies, the federal government and nonprofit organizations identified challenges using social media during and in support of disaster response. University researchers identified research gaps in three major areas: 1) technical challenges; 2) visual and data analytic challenges; and 3) social sciences challenges. 5

DHS Social Media Working Group for Emergency Services + Disaster Management
Recognizing the need to address the challenges associated with social media for emergency response and public safety, DHS S&T established the VSMWG in 2010. After Public Law 114-80 was passed, the VSMWG was re-named as the Social Media Working Group for Emergency Services and Disaster Management (SMWG). The mission of the SMWG is to provide recommendations to the emergency preparedness and response community on the safe and sustainable use of social media technologies before, during, and after emergencies. This community is meant to provide a platform within which the SMWG can share, discuss, and invite others from the public safety community to collaborate and contribute to the development of best practices and guidance on the use of social media for public safety. Members of FRCOP are invited to participate and provide comments in all discussions. 152
Disaster Joint Logistics Systems Practices and Programs
A forum for logistics practitioners to share best practices and collaborate on developing national logistics standards and practices for emergency operations. Furthering national logistics initiatives in areas of logistics capability assessments (LCAT), logistics training and standardization. Assisting states develop unified logistics programs that integrate local, state and federal agencies, VolAgs, and corporate partners for the purpose of pre-planning, response and recovery support to emergency operations both recurring and catastrophic. 158
Disaster Resilient Universities (DRU) Network
Creating a disaster-resilient university or college campus requires a focused effort on the part of the entire university community, including leadership, faculty, administrative professionals, staff, students, and external partners. The DRU Network assists universities nationwide by providing practitioners a multidisciplinary online platform to leverage their diverse knowledge, expertise, and skills. The goal of the DRU Network is to facilitate open communication, discussion, and resource sharing among university/college practitioners of all areas of expertise. A cornerstone of resilience is establishing effective partnerships. The peer-to-peer information sharing among DRU members helps them and others mitigate, prepare for, respond to, operate during, and recover from all types of campus emergencies. Collectively and professionally we can strengthen the resilience of universities and colleges by sharing our experiences, strategies, technical resources, processes, and lessons learned. This site serves as the DRU Networks repository. More information on the DRU Network can be found at https://dru.uoregon.edu 475
