VOSG.us is a global virtual on line community resource for Virtual Operations Support Teams (VOST). A VOST is one way for emergency managers to help harness the power of social media for emergency management (SMEM). The VOSG.us site was originated by Joanna Lane in Spring 2011 to support VOST Osbourne’s proof of concept exercise at NEMA11 and is now established as the hub for the Vost Leadership Coalition (VLC), comprising a worldwide community of interest in collaborating on the VOST concept. As a central hub for VOST, the site is interwoven with other related resources to facilitate access to information about VOST news, active teams status, VOST development, training opportunities, and future VOST opportunities.
The site is currently operated with the financial and volunteer help of Joanna Lane. Sponsorship opportunities are open.
