A compilation of stories and posts on the big social media and emergency management exercise currently underway in Canada and the US. 
A huge bi-national experiment on the use of social media in all aspects of emergency management is currently taking place across the eastern border between Canada and the US. Federal governments, state and provincial governments, municipalities, NGOs and digital volunteers are all involved.

Ebola ... a crisis communications primer.
