Abstract: Emergency preparedness is a discipline that harnesses technology, citizens, and government agencies to handle and potentially avoid natural disasters and emergencies. In this paper, a survey of the use of information technology, including social media, in emergency preparedness is presented. In addition, the current direction of research is identified, and future trends are forecasted that will lead to more effective and efficient methods of preparing for and responding to disasters.
