Social Media and Preparedness: A Community Affair

Wednesday, 17 October 2012 recently published an article by Bill Delany, Manager of Social Media and Life Safety Education for Montgomery (MD) Fire and Rescue, that looks at how fire and emergency service departments can utilize social media as a tool for public safety and community engagement. The article includes links to the Virtual Social Media Working Group’s (VSMWG) Social Media Strategy and newly released Community Engagement Guidance and Best Practices.

Fire Corps teams can assist departments with their social media outreach.  Learn more and access the VSMWG materials here.
