QPS Media releases report on their use of social media for disaster management

The Queensland Police Service Media group has released a report on their use of social media in managing disaster situations.

It's a good read, though only scratches the surface of what they achieved or what is possible.

As the document was released only as PDF, I've converted it to HTML 5.0 via Scribd for more widespread access as embedded below.

It will be very interesting to see which government agencies continue to resist the use of social media in future disaster situations. It will provide insights into their cultures and is likely to reflect on them publicly.

It may even be fair to say that it would be courageous of senior public servants in any government across Australia to forbid the use of social media for disaster management in the future.

The original PDF, Queensland Police Service: Disaster management and social media - a case study, is available here.
