We, at Virtual EMA, are particularly interested higher education from a couple of perspectives.
As students, we understand the importance of mentorship and providing a supportive environment for networking with emergency managers who are already active in the field. We are committed to keeping our membership rates low for both students and volunteers so that you can connect with others who are already serving in this field.
As researchers, we wish to encourage partnerships, study and evaluation of how data changes the playing field for emergency responders. As Next Generation 911, Big Data and Social Media aim to ultimately change the delivery of emergency services, we wish to support all research efforts in this arena. We will also aim to post research here on our site so that it is accessible to everyone.
Please let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org if there is a survey, study or research opportunity we may share with our membership.
