IT Support in a Pandemic
Show Notes

The COVID-19 Pandemic was a learning experience for everyone. A key
player in helping businesses and governments continue to function was the Information
Telecommunications (IT) departments. In this Disaster Zone Podcast I interview Linda
Gerull, Executive Director for the Department of Technology for the City and County of
San Francisco. She describes how they helped departments provide services in the
Bay Area. Additionally, in the first half of the podcast we talk about IT support of
emergency management in general and how technology support of government and
the emergency management function is evolving.
