Wanted: Social Media Heroes!

The Connecticut Virtual Operations Support Team (CTVOST) is a group of community volunteers who assist emergency responders by monitoring and analyzing social media for important information and communications trends posted during emergencies. CTVOST is planning to host free training for Goodwin students and employees on how to use social media during large-scale emergencies; deploy from the closest computer or mobile device; and connect with social media peers. The training will be held at Goodwin College at One Riverside Drive on Friday, February 24, Room 311, from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., and Saturday, February 25, Community Room, 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Participants must be 18 years or older, and join or belong to a Medical Reserve Corps unit.
