'Twitter class' for emergency services - Webinar

Optimising the use of Twitter in emergencies


The use of social media, especially Twitter, during emergencies has seen a huge increase in recent years. This trend is also followed by emergency services and public safety officials, who see a great potential in this tool.

But challenges still exist. Understanding Twitter's full capabilities, what it can do during emergency situations, as well as how emergency services can incorporate it in their toolkit, is key to addressing these challenges.

 

We invite all EENA Members from emergency services & public safety to join us
and hear all about maximising Twitter's potential in emergencies!

 

Join the webinar to hear directly from Twitter how it can be used and get tips that will help emergency services maximise its potential in the control room.
