ICT Earthquake response
In this presentation, Urban Search and Rescue ICT Team Member Steve Davis takes a look at how ICT is used in the response to the Christchurch Earthquakes. Steve was heavily involved as a Civil Defence USAR Response team member and assisted the NZ Red Cross.
ICT when used in the immediate aftermath of a disaster has many similarities to day to day use, but there are some significant and interesting differences as well. Steve will give an overview background in Emergency/Disaster management and his and other ICT teams' roles in the responses in September and February.
This presentation has changed from that originally advertised due to unforeseen circumstances.
5:30pm for a 6pm start. Light refreshments included.
