Hey Crisis Camp attendees-
Sorry for short notice. There is a meet up on Tuesday and all the

sense of Obama's trafficageddon (search #ObamaJamIV). Please forward
this to your communities.
Tuesday 9/27 at 6:30pm
Formosa Cafe, 7156 Santa Monica Blvd, West Hollywood
Come learn about the Crisis Commons, Social Media and Emergency
Management. The Crisis Camper is coming through Los Angeles, and will
stop to meet-up with local disaster response volunteers, techs,
programmers, social media and public affairs specialists, mappers, and
emergency managers. Join in the collaboration to help our communities
be better prepared.
Join us when you can from 6:30pm until around 8:30pm at the Formosa
Cafe in the traincar. No formal agenda - bring your ideas, laptops,

tour, discuss our recent local support during Carmageddon and
nationally for Hurricane Irene, and opportunities to build our
community in SoCal! Everyone is welcome!
We'll have a projector set-up and attendees are welcome to make brief
presentations or demo tools and ideas.
What is the CrisisCamper?
The CrisisCamper Tour for National Preparedness Month is promoting
digital preparedness and open data to help communities be better
prepared for crisis. Throughout the tour, CrisisCommons will learn
from the crisis experts and the tech community to help collaborate and
support local emergency managers, public health officials, and
community organizers in building relationships and technical
applications/processes across these communities.
The Tour began in the Bay Area with meetings in SF, San Jose and
Silicon Valley. It is in Santa Barbara today, and following Los
Angeles on Tuesday will
meet with volunteers technology communities and emergency officials in
Arizona, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Texas and Louisiana.
