#VOST Leadership Coalition Update

The past two weeks have been busy with a couple of notable VOST
support activations.


· The WildlandFires.Info VOST has been busy. This activation
has been supporting a number of wildland fires in multiple states
including Colorado. The Colorado Project Team, Kris Eriksen and other
PIO's have been providing guidance & direction. Jeff Phillips has
been the Team Leader. The key website has been

involved in this effort.



· The Arapaho Fire resulted in a VOST activation to support
PNW 2 (@pnw2) Incident Management Team's deployment to Arapaho,
Wyoming. Mar Reddy-Hjelmfelt and Jared Woods have been providing team
leader support to this activation.



In #VOST News shared on Twitter,


· Congrats to the Hawaii VOST Team for completing CERT
Training….your pictures were fun to see!



· Thanks to Scott for sharing changes to the Twitter search
function at this link location.



· NPR recently covered the emergence of social media in
emergency management and interviewed Kris Eriksen & I for some
comment. It was aired in Eastern WA yesterday and should be running
nationally, I am told by the reporter by the end of this week.


Thanks so much!
