Gil established Facebook’s global resiliency efforts in 2014. Among the programmes that he oversees are: strategic emergency management, global crisis management, global business continuity, data-centre resiliency, executive resiliency, resiliency operations and logistics, and Workplace violence management. 

 

The tools that Gil will outline include: the “Safety Check” feature for individuals near an incident such as an earthquake, a hurricane or shooting to let their friends and family know they are safe; the “Community Help API” which gives disaster response organisations access to Community Help data, offering important information about the needs of people affected by crises so that they can respond; and a “Blood Donations” app that helps to connect requests for blood donations of a certain type in a certain location with nearby donors that qualify.

 

Facebook’s Community Help tool was used by people in more that 500 different crises in 2017, including during the flooding in Brazil (May), Hurricane Harvey in the US (August), the attack in Barcelona (August), the flooding in Mumbai (August) and the earthquake in Central Mexico (September).
