Dell solutions provide the Red Cross with innovative ways to help Americans impacted by disaster

Dell provided the Red Cross with the unique consulting expertise, technology solutions and funding to architect and build the new Digital Operations Center and design the Digital Volunteer Program. Dell’s involvement is part of the company’s larger commitment to the Red Cross, which it has expanded to include additional general funding, technology and employee engagement to support innovative disaster relief programs.

As a member of the Red Cross Annual Disaster Giving Program, Dell helps the Red Cross assist victims of disaster and support volunteers who work at disaster scenes. Members of the Annual Disaster Giving Program pledge donations in advance of major disasters to help the Red Cross ensure an immediate response to meet the needs of those affected by disasters.

Public and private sectors collaborating on crisis-response in social media

The Red Cross has been engaged in a multi-year effort to improve the use of social data in emergencies, working closely with the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), the White House and other public and private sector organizations. After hosting an Emergency Social Data Summit in 2010, these organizations have continued to collaborate and identify solutions focused on people, process and technology. A white paper released after the Summit identified a number of necessary steps, and stressed the importance of having a network of engaged volunteers to implement new monitoring and response methods.
