The networking section is a PTSC-Online feature which should be one of our more valuable features as we develop and mature as an on line community, because it provides significant benefits to our networking partners.
Please visit our Networking section to review the valuable information it contains. While you are there please consider how networking within PTSC-Online may benefit your organization. We would be pleased to discuss networking options with you. Please contact Bill MacKay.
Some of the more recent highlights you may want to check out in the networking section are:
- The Canadian Centre for Emergency Preparedness space which has just been created to provide communication and collaboration tools to help CCEP directors, staff and members more effectively pursue CCEP goals and objectives. Pay particular attention to Sean Tracey's article on "Concept of A Canadan Centre of Excelence for Disaster Risk Reduction and Emergency Management". It has just been posted in a dedicated Centre of Excellence bog channel to fcilitate discussion on this topic which should be of interest to risk management and emergency management professionals.
- The Ontario Associaton of Eergency Managers has their own on line community hosted on the same IGLOO software platform as PTSC-Onine but we use a networking section to share information between the two communities to make it more convenient for our viewers.
- PTSC-Online is also working with the Canadian Red Cross who have a space dedicated to supporting the formation of the Muskoka - West Parry Sound Disaster Management Team.
- The NFPA Canada space has been successfuly used to facititate distribution of NFPA standards and related materials to Canadian stakeholders for over a year. It is also used to facilitate discussion on any topics which are important to the fire service and emergency managers. Check out the recent discussion forum on hoarding as it relaes to fire safety. It has been viewed over 600 times and has several comments which ilustrates the power of on line networking supported by social media.
