As Sandy Pounded NYC, Fire Department Worker was a Twitter Lifeline

This is a great example of how first responders get information through social media.  No one wants Twitter to replace people calling 911 but in some cases, they turn to Twitter and other social media channels out of desperation.

This is an example of just one of many roles that information specialists and librarians can take on during emergencies.
