From 9/11 anniversaries to hurricanes to earthquakes to power outages and much more, recent events are causing us to consider how our new technologies impact our behavior in emergency situations.  Technology, especially mobile technology like smart phones, has obvious benefits in emergencies and disasters, but our reliance on technology has raised a whole new set of issues.  In this episode, we discuss how new technology is changing our behavior and expectations in emergencies, what lessons we have learned and practical tips people have shared, and preparation and planning lawyers and the legal profession should consider.
