Presentation Topic: Transforming the Red Cross Mission through Technology

This presentation will demonstrate the transformative power of a new Red Cross system, RCView.  RCView is the Red Cross disaster event management system.  This system has changed the way the Red Cross manages preparedness, response, and recovery operations.  Enhanced visibility of supply chain and asset tracking leads to more efficient and effective operations that "digitzation" provides.  RCView enables the Red Cross and their partners to share a visual situational awareness and draw on near real time data to better manage disaster operations.

About the Speaker:

Sam Rodgers has served as the Regional Disaster Officer for the Eastern North Carolina Region since September 2018.  His Red Cross career spans from 2011 as a volunteer caseworker during the spring tornado outbreak across the Southeast, to a volunteer partner for the national casework program lead, and in 2013 became an employee at national headquarters on the Continuous Improvement team.  Prior to the Red Cross, Sam was involved in communications and national political work, mostly focused on polling and market research.  He received both his Bachelors and Masters in Public Administration from the University of Georgia.  He lives in Durham with his wife, Christie (also a Red Crosser), their son Samuel, and a black lab named Red.

The American Red Cross prevents and alleviates human suffering in the face of emergencies by mobilizing the power of volunteers and the generosity of donors.​ Red Cross volunteers and staff work to deliver vital services – from providing relief and support to those in crisis, to helping you be prepared to respond in emergencies.  Learn more about the Red Cross here.
