We went to DC where we were able to tour FEMA and the Capitol. It was a beautiful Fall day in DC, very comfortable in the sunshine.
Our time at FEMA first started with us sitting in on a daily briefing. It was enlightening to see what they discuss from day to day. After the briefing we took a mini tour inside the NRCC. It was awesome to see under the umbrella of FEMA, there a lot of divisions and groups that work together.
Once the tour concluded, we sat down with several FEMA representatives and had an engaging discussion on the role of social media in disaster response. Here’s an article about the tour and the work FEMA and Humanity Road have done together.
