In the online chapter of Advice From A Risk Detective, I wrote about the enormous potential of social media for good, especially in helping to shoulder the communications load during disasters. Though Craig Fuguate, director of FEMA, is a walking example of how to effectively use social media, many in the emergency management profession still resist it. Here's a book, written especially for emergency managers, that could be persuasive.
