When: Thursday, April 25, 2013
Time: 1:30 – 2:30pm (Eastern)
Who: Disaster Information Management Research Center, National Library of Medicine
There are many mobile resources and apps available to assist responders, public health professionals and others in the disaster and preparedness workforce with information needs before and during emergencies and disasters. However, loading these resources on a mobile device just prior to or during a disaster may be too late. Finding and evaluating the best tools and resources takes time, as does learning how to use the effectively and quickly. The National Library of Medicine (NLM) has developed a suite of widely-used resources for mobile devices such as WISER (Wireless Information System for Emergency Responders) and has evaluated and made accessible on their web site many other mobile apps and information resources that are useful in emergency and disaster situations.In this webinar, representatives from NLM will identify and discuss key resources that responders and disaster/emergency management preparedness professionals should load on their mobile devices as part of their preparedness activities. This session will be recorded and posted at http://disasterinfo.nlm.nih.gov/dimrc/dismeetings.html a few days after the meeting.
No registration is necessary, but the session will be limited to 500 participants.
