[edit] Emergency Management

There has been a shift online in communicating within the public at the time of a disaster or emergency. Information communication technologies (ICT) when used correctly can be a powerful tool used to help inform victims and the public on statistics, facts and the next steps. The proper use of ICT'S is of most importance during emergency situations to ensure that emergency response is delivered effectively and also to keep the public informed with accurate information.
