The FEMA Private Sector Division recently launched the new FEMA Private Sector Widget leveraging Web 2.0 tools to enhance our ability to protect, prepare, respond, recover and mitigate against all forms of disasters as well as enhance community resiliency across the nation. FEMA's goals with Web 2.0 tools are: to provide timely and accurate information related to disaster preparedness response and recovery; provide the public with another avenue for insight into the agency’s operations; and engage in what has already become a critical medium in today’s world of communications.
